Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-3252) YARN LinuxContainerExecutor runs as nobody in Simple Security mode for all applications
Date Tue, 24 Feb 2015 23:47:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-3252?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14335677#comment-14335677

Eric Yang commented on YARN-3252:
---------------------------------

Thank you Allen.  By using the fix in YARN-2424, it is possible to run application as submitted
user.  Proxy user concept could be an enhancement to ensure only a small set of users have
privileges to run core services.  Such as Spark on YARN or HBase on YARN, those users are
supposely trusted services.  Some proxy user rules in YARN can help to reduce the security
risk that YARN-1253 was originally concerned about.

> When using YARN + Slider + LinuxContainerExecutor, all slider application are running
as nobody.  This is because the modification in YARN-1253 to restrict all containers to run
as a single user.  This becomes a exploite to any application that runs inside YARN + Slider
+ LCE.  The original behavior is more correct.  The original statement indicated that users
can impersonate any other users.  This supposed to be only valid for proxy users, who can
proxy as other users.  It is designed as intended that the service user needs to be trusted
by the framework to impersonate end users.
