Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7781) Update security unit tests to use a KDC if available
Date Fri, 20 Dec 2013 10:50:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7781?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13853857#comment-13853857

ramkrishna.s.vasudevan commented on HBASE-7781:

Before proceeding with the JIRA, so I went through what is given in all the JIRAs mentioned
here.  HADOOP-8078 also tries to start the ApacheDS but it seems to be an older version.
HADOOP-9848 introduces miniKDC in the hadoop project itself as a module.
So we would also be introducing the miniKDC in HBase side and all security testcases will
run that along with the cluster?  
So the miniKDC available in hbase will be a seperate module(like in hadoop) or will it be
a class that just allows to start a minikdc?

> We currently have large holes in the test coverage of HBase with security enabled.  Two
recent examples of bugs which really should have been caught with testing are HBASE-7771 and
HBASE-7772.  The long standing problem with testing with security enabled has been the requirement
for supporting kerberos infrastructure.
> We need to close this gap and provide some automated testing with security enabled, if
necessary standing up and provisioning a temporary KDC as an option for running integration
tests, see HADOOP-8078 and HADOOP-9004 where a similar approach was taken.
