> 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.
