Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-11810) Access SSL Passwords through Credential Provider API
Date Sun, 24 Aug 2014 18:28:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11810?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14108485#comment-14108485
] 

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-11810:
----------------------------------------

No the compatibility modules can't help differences intra major Hadoop release, so we have
to use reflection instead. Ignore the compatibility modules. (We don't need reflection there
because compile time differences are placed into respective maven modules e.g. if building
for Hadoop 2 the Hadoop 1 compat module is not even selected for compilation)

> HADOOP-10607 introduced the credential provider API for allowing passwords and other
sensitive configuration items to be stored in an external provider.
> RESTServer is accessing passwords stored in clear text in Configuration through the standard
get() method. By using the new Configuration.getPassword method instead, the credential provider
API will be checked first then fall back to clear text - when allowed.
