Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-14686) Ensure authoritative security coprocessors execute in the correct context

--------------------------------------

             Summary: Ensure authoritative security coprocessors execute in the correct context
                 Key: HBASE-14686
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-14686
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Umbrella
            Reporter: Andrew Purtell


In deployments using security coprocessors, those using preXXX hooks expect to make authoritative
decisions with all information available to them in the execution context including the request
user. Where users can issue requests in a RPC context separate from the context where the
work will be performed, we need to carry the request user's credentials through up to the
coprocessor upcall once we finally make it.

This has been an occasional issue as various parts of the code are refactored. Revisit again.
