Srikanth Srungarapu created HBASE-14045:

             Summary: Bumping thrift version to 0.9.2.
                 Key: HBASE-14045
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-14045
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Srikanth Srungarapu
            Assignee: Srikanth Srungarapu
             Fix For: 2.0.0, 1.3.0

>From mailing list conversation:

Currently, HBase is using Thrift 0.9.0 version, with the latest  version being 0.9.2. Currently,
the HBase Thrift gateway is vulnerable to crashes due to THRIFT-2660 when used with default
transport and the workaround for this problem is switching to framed transport. Unfortunately,
the recently added impersonation support \[1\] doesn't work with framed transport leaving
thrift gateway using this feature susceptible to crashes.  Updating thrift version to 0.9.2
will help us in mitigating this problem. Given that security is one of key requirements for
the production clusters, it would be good to ensure our users that security features in thrift
gateway can be used without any major concerns. Aside this, there are also some nice fixes
pertaining to  leaky resources in 0.9.2 like \[2\] and \[3\].

As far compatibility guarantees are concerned, thrift assures 100% wire compatibility. However,
it is my understanding that there were some minor additions (new API) in 0.9.2 \[4\] which
won't work in 0.9.0, but that won't affect us since we are not using those features. And I
tried running test suite and did manual testing with thrift version set to 0.9.2 and things
are running smoothly. If there are no objections to this change, I would be more than happy
to file a jira and follow this up.
