Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-13853) Add X-XSRF-Header filter to HS2 HTTP mode and WebHCat
Date Wed, 25 May 2016 19:14:12 GMT
Sushanth Sowmyan created HIVE-13853:

             Summary: Add X-XSRF-Header filter to HS2 HTTP mode and WebHCat
                 Key: HIVE-13853
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: HiveServer2, WebHCat
            Reporter: Sushanth Sowmyan
            Assignee: Sushanth Sowmyan

There is a possibility that there may be a CSRF-based attack on various hadoop components,
and thus, there is an effort to add a block for all incoming http requests if they do not
contain a X-XSRF-Header header. (See HADOOP-12691 for motivation)

This has potential to affect HS2 when running on thrift-over-http mode(if cookie-based-auth
is used), and webhcat.

We introduce new flags to determine whether or not we're using the filter, and if we are,
we will automatically reject any http requests which do not contain this header.

To allow this to work, we also need to make changes to our JDBC driver to automatically inject
this header into any requests it makes. Also, any client-side programs/api not using the JDBC
driver directly will need to make changes to add a X-XSRF-Header header to the request to
make calls to HS2/WebHCat if this filter is enabled.
