Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-7499) Add NFSv4 + Kerberos / client authentication support
Date Tue, 09 Dec 2014 17:28:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7499?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14239698#comment-14239698
] 

Allen Wittenauer commented on HDFS-7499:
----------------------------------------

RFC-compliant NFSv3 can also do Kerberos, it is marked as an optional feature and many implementations
do not implement it. Sun fixed this mistake; RFC-compliant NFSv4 requires Kerberos support.

That said, NFSv4 is a MUCH MUCH MUCH better fit for HDFS than NFSv3, due to the open and close
semantics.

> We have a requirement for secure file share access to HDFS on a kerberized cluster.
> This is spun off from HDFS-7488 where adding Kerberos to the front end client was considered,
I believe this would require NFSv4 support?
