Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-9929) Trusted administration server
Date Sat, 09 Nov 2013 00:30:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-9929?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13817898#comment-13817898

Mikhail Antonov commented on HBASE-9929:

Yes, I agree that's not really HBase feature, more like very custom requirement which has
to be implemented as a custom solution.

> Some deployments would like to avoid needing kerberos principals for taking administrative
actions with the HBase shell, substituting their own authentication. The HBase shell is a
regular HBase client, which could run anywhere, and cannot be trusted with simple authentication
or impersonation of arbitrary users. 
> Other Hadoop ecosystem components have a service process registered in cluster configuration
afforded the elevated privilege of impersonation. For HBase, this could be a trusted administration
server that would reside at a fixed location, could be trusted to impersonate, with the shell
modified to optionally proxy administrative commands through it.
> Carried over from HBASE-2016 without comment.
