> ReconfigurableBase can log sensitive information

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-13494
>             Project: Hadoop Common
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: security
>    Affects Versions: 2.2.0

> ReconfigurableBase will log old and new configuration values, which may cause sensitive
parameters (most notably cloud storage keys, though there may be other instances) to get included
in the logs. 
> Given the currently small list of reconfigurable properties, an argument could be made
for simply not logging the property values at all, but this is not the only instance where
potentially sensitive configuration gets written somewhere else in plaintext. I think a generic
mechanism for redacting sensitive information for textual display will be useful to some of
the web UIs too.
