Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-11810) Access SSL Passwords through Credential Provider API
Date Sat, 23 Aug 2014 01:31:11 GMT
Larry McCay created HBASE-11810:

             Summary: Access SSL Passwords through Credential Provider API
                 Key: HBASE-11810
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11810
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: security
            Reporter: Larry McCay

HADOOP-10607 introduced the credential provider API for allowing passwords and other sensitive
configuration items to be stored in an external provider.

RESTServer is accessing passwords stored in clear text in Configuration through the standard
get() method. By using the new Configuration.getPassword method instead, the credential provider
API will be checked first then fall back to clear text - when allowed.
