Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-12911) Upgrade Hadoop MiniKDC with Kerby
Date Sat, 28 May 2016 14:53:12 GMT

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-12911:
-------------------------------------------

Why was this committed with a findbugs errors rather than adding the necessary plumbing in
pom.xml to make it go away?  Why wasn't the fix version set in jira?  Do we actually need
to package all of these extra bits into the distribution tar ball?

> As discussed in the mailing list, we’d like to introduce Apache Kerby into Hadoop.
Initially it’s good to start with upgrading Hadoop MiniKDC with Kerby offerings. Apache
Kerby (https://github.com/apache/directory-kerby), as an Apache Directory sub project, is
a Java Kerberos binding. It provides a SimpleKDC server that borrowed ideas from MiniKDC and
implemented all the facilities existing in MiniKDC. Currently MiniKDC depends on the old Kerberos
implementation in Directory Server project, but the implementation is stopped being maintained.
Directory community has a plan to replace the implementation using Kerby. MiniKDC can use
Kerby SimpleKDC directly to avoid depending on the full of Directory project. Kerby also provides
nice identity backends such as the lightweight memory based one and the very simple json one
for easy development and test environments.
