Subject HDFS authentication
Date Fri, 10 Jan 2014 07:56:36 GMT
Does HDFS provide any build in authentication out of the box? I wanted to
make explicit access to HDFS from Java. I wanted people to access HDFS
using "username:password@hdfs://client.skynet.org:9000/user/data" or
something like that.

I am new to Hadoop. We are planning to use Hadoop mainly for Archiving and
probably processing at a later time. The idea is customers can setup their
own HDFS cluster and provide us the HDFS URL to dump the data to.

Is it possible to have access to HDFS in a similar way we access databases
using credential?

Thanks.
