Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-12168) Document Rest gateway SPNEGO-based authentication for client
Date Fri, 03 Oct 2014 16:30:37 GMT
Jerry He created HBASE-12168:

             Summary: Document Rest gateway SPNEGO-based authentication for client
                 Key: HBASE-12168
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-12168
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: documentation, REST, security
            Reporter: Jerry He
             Fix For: 0.98.8, 0.99.1

After HBASE-5050, we seem to support SPNEGO-based authentication from client on Rest gateway.
But I had a tough time finding the info.
The support is not mentioned in Security book. In the security book, we still have:
bq. It should be possible for clients to authenticate with the HBase cluster through the REST
gateway in a pass-through manner via SPEGNO HTTP authentication. This is future work.

The release note in HBASE-5050 seems to be obsolete as well. e.g.
hbase.rest.kerberos.spnego.principal seems to be obsolete.
