Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-1253) Changes to LinuxContainerExecutor to use cgroups in unsecure mode
Date Mon, 30 Sep 2013 23:34:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-1253?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13782426#comment-13782426

Arun C Murthy commented on YARN-1253:

AFAIK, LCE already works in non-secure more. 

Can you please help me understand what is the extra ask here? Is the intent to ensure only
NM can use LCE to run as other users?

>             Project: Hadoop YARN
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: nodemanager
>    Affects Versions: 2.1.0-beta
>            Reporter: Alejandro Abdelnur
>            Assignee: Roman Shaposhnik
>            Priority: Blocker
> When using cgroups we require LCE to be configured in the cluster to start containers.

> When LCE starts containers as the user that submitted the job. While this works correctly
in a secure setup, in an un-secure setup this presents a couple issues:
> * LCE requires all Hadoop users submitting jobs to be Unix users in all nodes
> * Because users can impersonate other users, any user would have access to any local
file of other users
> Particularly, the second issue is not desirable as a user could get access to ssh keys
of other users in the nodes or if there are NFS mounts, get to other users data outside of
the cluster.
