Sqoop should read and transmit passwords in a more secure manner
----------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: MAPREDUCE-710
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-710
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: contrib/sqoop
            Reporter: Aaron Kimball
            Assignee: Aaron Kimball
         Attachments: MAPREDUCE-710.patch

Sqoop's current support for passwords involves reading passwords from the command line "--password
foo", which makes the password visible to other users via 'ps'. An invisible-console approach
should be taken.

Related, Sqoop transmits passwords to mysqldump in the same fashion, which is also insecure.
