Subject [jira] [Created] (RANGER-842) Use PAM for authentication
Date Wed, 10 Feb 2016 13:34:18 GMT
Bolke de Bruin created RANGER-842:

             Summary: Use PAM for authentication
                 Key: RANGER-842
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RANGER-842
             Project: Ranger
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: admin
    Affects Versions: 0.5.1, 0.6.0
            Reporter: Bolke de Bruin
             Fix For: 0.5.1, 0.6.0

Ranger currently uses shadow based authentication if configured for unix authentication. This
way of authenticating is somewhat outdated as any recent Linux system (and many of the BSDs)
have PAM available. PAM allows multiple authentication sources and also does authorization.

Ranger should be able to use PAM for authentication
