Subject Re: Thrift client authentication skipped for HBase thrift server
Date Tue, 02 Sep 2014 19:05:49 GMT

HBASE-11349/HBASE-11474 is indeed to authenticate Thrift clients using
Kerberos. Is this what you are looking for?
For Thrift server authentication, it is already there. Please refer to the
hbase book
Section 8.1.4 for more details.
