Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-5273) Improve the documentation of SSL/HTTPS-related configuration
Date Sat, 28 Sep 2013 00:10:04 GMT
Haohui Mai created HDFS-5273:

             Summary: Improve the documentation of SSL/HTTPS-related configuration
                 Key: HDFS-5273
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-5273
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Haohui Mai
            Assignee: Haohui Mai
            Priority: Minor

There are multiple switches in the configuration related to HTTPS/SSL, some of which are confusing.
For example, _dfs.https.enable_ controls that whether http server will open another port for
HTTPS connections, but when _hadoop.ssl.enabled_ is set to true, the original HTTP server
only serves HTTPS connections.

Combining other requirements of setting up secure clusters (e.g., the HTTP port has to be
lower than 1024 for a secure datanode), we found that a well-written document is a must-have
to overcome the pain of configuring an SSL/HTTPS-enabled cluster.
