NAME

Thrift::SASL::Transport - Thrift Transport allowing Kerberos auth/encryption through GSSAPI

VERSION

version 0.007

SYNOPSIS

run kinit first for getting your credentials cache in order, then (example for communicating with a secure HiveServer2 instance):

    use Authen::SASL qw(XS);
    my $sasl = Authen::SASL->new( mechanism => 'GSSAPI');

    use Thrift::Socket;
    use Thrift::BufferedTransport;
    use Thrift::SASL::Transport;
    use Thrift::API::HiveClient2;

    my $socket = Thrift::Socket->new( $srv_host, 10000 );
    my $strans = Thrift::SASL::Transport->new(
        Thrift::BufferedTransport->new($socket),
        $sasl,
        $debuglevel
    );

    my $hive = Thrift::API::HiveClient2->new(
        _socket    => $socket,
        _transport => $strans,
    );

DESCRIPTION

Add SASL support to Apache's Thrift, in order to support Kerberos auth, among others. Highly experimental and hack-ish. Ideally this should be part of the Thrift distribution, once proven to work reliably.
