Alejandro Abdelnur commented on HBASE-5050:

You can look at Oozie's trunk which has done this integration already, *org.apache.oozie.servlet.AuthFilter*

>                 Key: HBASE-5050
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5050
>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: rest, security
>            Reporter: Andrew Purtell
> Currently the REST gateway can authenticate to a HBase cluster using a preconfigured
principal. This provides a limited form of secure operation where one or more gateways can
be deployed with distinct principals granting appropriate levels of privilege, but the service
ports must be protected through network ACLs. This is at best a stopgap.
> SPNEGO is the standard mechanism for Kerberos authentication over HTTP. Enhance the REST
gateway such that it provides this option, and issues requests to the HBase cluster with the
established context.
