>                 Key: HDFS-5716
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-5716
>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Bug

> Currently the WebHDFS server only uses SPNEGO filters for authentication purposes. The
design serves the purpose well when SPNEGO is available, however, other services (e.g., the
web UI) where SPNEGO might be unavailable can also use WebHDFS.
> Note that the web UI and the WebHDFS are served by the same Jetty server on the same
port. The Web UI can use customized authentication filters, it might make sense to allow WebHDFS
to take customized authentication filters as well.
