Subject [jira] [Assigned] (HADOOP-10183) Allow use of UPN style principals in keytab files

Aaron T. Myers reassigned HADOOP-10183:

    Assignee: Mubashir Kazia

Thanks a lot for taking this up, Mubashir. Assigning this to you.

Would you mind re-uploading just the HADOOP-10183.patch file? That should get the pre-commit
job to run tests against that file, instead of against the test file.

> Hadoop currently only allows SPN style (E.g. hdfs/node.fqdn@REALM) principals in keytab
files in a cluster configured with Kerberos security. This cause the burden of creating multiple
principals and keytabs for each node of the cluster. Active Directory allows the use of single
principal across multiple hosts if the SPNs for different hosts have been setup correctly
on the principal. With this scheme we have the server side using keytab file with UPN style
(E.g. hdfs@REALM) principal for a given service for all the nodes of the cluster. The client
side will request service tickets with SPN and it's own TGT and Active Directory will grant
service tickets with the correct secret. 
> This will simplify the use of principals and keytab files for Active Directory users
with one principal for each service across all the nodes of the cluster. 
> I have a patch to allow the use of UPN style principals in Hadoop. The patch will not
affect the use of SPN style principals. I couldn't figure out a way to write test cases against
MiniKDC so I have included the Oracle/Sun sample Sasl server and client code along with the
configuration I used to confirm this scheme works.
