Authentication on Secure Clusters for HttpFS

In MEP 3.0, HttpFS features several authentication methods on secure clusters. HttpFS authentication, such as native security (MapR-SASL), Kerberos (for which additional configuration is required), or plain (using PAM) is determined automatically.

The following httpfs-site.xml file properties are set by default:

<property>
      <name>httpfs.hadoop.authentication.type</name>
      <value>multiauth</value>     
</property>      
<property>
      <name>httpfs.authentication.type</name>
      <value>multiauth</value>
</property>
