Providing Kerberos Credentials using a Ticket Cache

Configure Kerberos for the DataStax Enterprise (DSE) clients, including dsetool, DSE FS, DSE Graph, and DSE Spark.


These steps require MIT Kerberos tools:


  1. Create a Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS) configuration file for the DSE Client as follows:

    Use the default filename .java.login.config and put the file in the user’s home directory. Set the DSE client class to and define the variables as follows:

    DseClient { required
  2. Optional: If the JAAS configuration is not in the default location or has a different name, customize the location using on of the following methods:

  3. Use kinit to get a ticket:

    Start kinit:

    kinit -f <principal_name>
