Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-7295) Support arbitrary max expiration times for delegation token
Date Tue, 04 Nov 2014 21:48:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7295?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14196896#comment-14196896

Allen Wittenauer commented on HDFS-7295:
----------------------------------------

FWIW, I *do* think the max lifespan should be configurable.  But letting that abs max time
span be up to the user is suicide for security.

> Currently the max lifetime of HDFS delegation tokens is hardcoded to 7 days. This is
a problem for different users of HDFS such as long running YARN apps. Users should be allowed
to optionally specify max lifetime for their tokens.
