Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-7357:
--------------------------------------

+1 ... Does this need a documentation change somewhere aswell? Can do as separate jira if
needed.

> This came up in the context of testing HBASE-6788.  Currently HBaseClient and HBaseServer
call UserGroupInformation.isSecurityEnabled() when determining whether or not to use SASL
to negotiate connections.  This means they are using the hadoop.security.authentication configuration
value.  Since this is in the context of HBase RPC connections, it seems more correct to use
the hbase.security.authentication configuration value by calling User.isHBaseSecurityEnabled().
