Larry McCay commented on HDFS-6790:
-----------------------------------

Hi [~devaraj] or [~sanjay.radia] can I bother one of you for a quick review and possible commit
for this patch? It will need to go to branch-2 as well.

> As part of HADOOP-10904, DFSUtil should be changed to leverage the new method on Configuration
for acquiring known passwords for SSL. The getPassword method will leverage the credential
provider API and/or fallback to the clear text value stored in ssl-server.xml.
> This will provide an alternative to clear text passwords on disk while maintaining backward
compatibility for this behavior.
