Jerry He commented on HBASE-12168:
----------------------------------

Hi, [~jxiang]

Yes.
We can improve the sections, and/or add a section to mention SPNEGO-based authentication for
client.
I am trying to set it up.  After that, I probably will have more input.

> 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.
