Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-710) Sqoop should read and transmit passwords in a more secure manner

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-710?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12729902#action_12729902

Aaron Kimball commented on MAPREDUCE-710:

Test failures are still unrelated to the 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.
