Strong Authentication

Lars Francke
Hi,

I am browsing the code and the documentation for information about authentication[1] options in Alluxio.

Just to confirm: Alluxio does not currently support any strong form of authentication out of the box, right?

It supports SIMPLE which trusts whatever the client sends, it supports NOSASL which disables any authentication or custom.

Are there any plans to add support for e.g. Kerberos? I tried looking in Jira but couldn't find anything, same on the mailing list.

Thank you!

Cheers,
Lars

Hi Lars,

For Kerberos support on Alluxio, you may look at this Unified Security section.
