    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-3558?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16938686#comment-16938686

Mohammad Arshad commented on ZOOKEEPER-3558:

Thanks for the information [~hanm] 
Two concerns with ZOOKEEPER-1634.
 1. It is merged only in master.
2. It is limited to only sasl authentication scheme. It can not support any other scheme

Shall we back port ZOOKEEPER-1634 to branch-3.5 also do changed to make it work for any authentication

>             Project: ZooKeeper
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>            Reporter: Mohammad Arshad
>            Assignee: Mohammad Arshad
>            Priority: Major
>             Fix For: 3.5.7
>         Attachments: ZOOKEEPER-3558-01.patch
> Provide authentication enforcement in ZooKeeper that is backward compatible and can work
for any authentication scheme, can work even with custom authentication schemes.
> *Problems:*
> 1. Currently server is starting with default authentication providers(DigestAuthenticationProvider,
IPAuthenticationProvider). These default authentication providers are not really secure.
> 2. ZooKeeper server is not checking whether authentication is done or not before performing
any user operation.
> *Solutions:*
> 1. We should not start any authentication provider by default. But this would be backward
incompatible change. So we can provide configuration whether to start default authentication
provides are not.
> By default we can start these authentication providers.
> 2. Before any user operation server should check whether authentication happened or not.
At least client must be authenticated with one authentication scheme.
