One important aspect of hadoop is management of users for YARN and HDFS,
and multitenant apps.
The Security/Authentication stack should probably be integrated somewhere
into bigtop, but im not sure how or where to start.
Maybe some initial comments on the above JIRA would help.
I've written up one simple way to unifie UID/GIDs in using the JumpBox EC2
appliance here :
Any thoughts on wether or not a canned user management service should or
should not be a part of bigtop?
