      Description

      [thxs ATM for point this one out]

      Alfredo configuration currently is stored in the core-site.xml file, this file is readable by users (it must be as Configuration defaults must be loaded).

      One of Alfredo config values is a secret which is used by all nodes to sign/verify the authentication cookie.

      A user could get hold of this secret and forge authentication cookies for other users.

      Because of this the Alfredo configuration, should be move to a user non-readable file.
