I believe that the capability to authenticate to the source database via a client is what is proposed in SQOOP-795, https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SQOOP-795? So that there is currently no way to authenticate in sqoop without a prompt on each database access.
I assume that in practice for large numbers of transfers secure connection alternatives are custom engineered by users?
