Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-5280) Allow YARN containers to run with Java Security Manager
Date Tue, 15 Nov 2016 22:48:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-5280?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15668629#comment-15668629

Greg Phillips commented on YARN-5280:
-------------------------------------

[~vvasudev] - thanks for the guidance.  I have definitely run out of space in the hadoop tmp
dir in the past, and I completely agree that storing the java.policy in the container private
directory is a better solution.  I have made that modification, and I am currently testing
it.  For debugging purposes users can inspect the generated java.policy file from within their
application using System.getSecurityManager(), or by providing client arguments for security
manager debugging.  I will include notes on this in the javadoc, and in future feature documentation.

The difficulty arises when moving the functionality from prepareContainer to launchContainer.
 In particular I need to modify the actual java run command instead of the container launch
command.  The only way I have found to modify the run command found within the launch_container.sh
is through the LinuxContainerExecutor#writeLaunchEnv.  A method which links the LinuxContainerExecutor
with the ContainerRuntime prior to the environment being written seems necessary for this
feature.  I am very interested in your thoughts on this matter.

> YARN applications have the ability to perform privileged actions which have the potential
to add instability into the cluster. The Java Security Manager can be used to prevent users
from running privileged actions while still allowing their core data processing use cases.

> Introduce a YARN flag which will allow a Hadoop administrator to enable the Java Security
Manager for user code, while still providing complete permissions to core Hadoop libraries.
