Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-8660) [rest] support secure REST access
Date Mon, 03 Jun 2013 16:45:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8660?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13673300#comment-13673300
] 

Jimmy Xiang commented on HBASE-8660:
------------------------------------

Very good points.  HTTPS will add overhead for sure.  Fortunately, it is optional, and SPNEGO/Kerbos
doesn't require HTTPS.  So HTTPS can be enabled only if it is absolutely needed.

> REST interface is accessed over http, which is most likely done from outside of a HBase
cluster, perhaps over internet.  It will be great if we can make it secure.  To be secure,
we need to:
> 1. authenticate the caller,
> 2. check authorization if needed,
> 3. make the connection secure (https)
