Subject [jira] [Created] (SPARK-5158) Allow for keytab-based HDFS security in Standalone mode
Date Thu, 08 Jan 2015 21:23:36 GMT
Patrick Wendell created SPARK-5158:

             Summary: Allow for keytab-based HDFS security in Standalone mode
                 Key: SPARK-5158
             Project: Spark
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Spark Core
            Reporter: Patrick Wendell
            Assignee: Matthew Cheah
            Priority: Critical

There have been a handful of patches for allowing access to Kerberized HDFS clusters in standalone
mode. The main reason we haven't accepted these patches have been that they rely on insecure
distribution of token files from the driver to the other components.

As a simpler solution, I wonder if we should just provide a way to have the Spark driver and
executors independently log in and acquire credentials using a keytab. This would work for
users who are build dedicated, single-tenant, Spark clusters (i.e. they are willing to have
a keytab on every machine running Spark for their application). It wouldn't address all possible
deployment scenarios, but if it's simple I think it's worth considering.

This would also work for Spark streaming jobs, which often run on dedicated hardware since
they are long-running services.
