Subject [jira] [Commented] (NIFI-1614) Simple Username/Password Authentication
Date Tue, 03 May 2016 19:49:13 GMT


ASF GitHub Bot commented on NIFI-1614:

Github user jvwing commented on the pull request:
    I added a new CLI utility that just hashes passwords using Bcrypt.  For the moment, I
left the rest of the code alone.  I'm still struggling with how to best package and distribute
any command-line utility.  There are currently a couple of undesirable steps to running this:

    1. Build a standalone jar of nifi-file-identity-provider using `mvn compile assembly:single`
    1. Run the standalone jar like `java -jar nifi-file-identity-provider-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT-jar-with-dependencies.jar`
    I do not know how to run the class from within the NAR file.  It seems like we would need
to get the module to compile to JAR, get the JAR in the lib folder, and then make a shell
script to wrap the nice java syntax.  Any ideas on that?

> NiFi should include a simple option for username/password authentication backed by a
local file store.  NiFi's existing certificate and LDAP authentication schemes are very secure.
 However, the configuration and setup is complex, making them more suitable for long-lived
corporate and government installations, but less accessible for casual or short-term use.
 Simple username/password authentication would help more users secure more NiFi installations
beyond anonymous admin access.
