Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-78) Authentication infrastructure for Hive
Date Mon, 24 Nov 2008 18:41:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-78?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12650271#action_12650271

Ashish Thusoo commented on HIVE-78:
-----------------------------------

+1 on this.

I also wanted to integrate this with AD through kerberos as that is perhaps the dominant user
repositories in most enterprises and at least internally we have some users that do not have
unix accounts (mostly analysts). We could use samba to provide the bridge to AD as there are
certain nuances when it comes to Kerberos with AD as well as NTLM and NTLMv2 auths that samba
has already solved.

Also we should also think of providing integration with unix accounts - those maintained in
passwd db specially for folks who want to just test authentication specific features.

In the past the most dominant directories that I have found in enterprise environments as
AD (can be bridged through LDAP and Samba), Sun Java One, Novell and OID (all LDAP directories)
and Unix accounts.

Thoughts?
