      Description

      Accumulo requires a couple of sensitive pieces of information to be provided when it is starting up (including the Accumulo root user's password). Those are currently provided in the appConfig.json file. Hadoop common is adding a CredentialProvider (HADOOP-10607) that allows you to enter passwords into a Java KeyStore (the storage mechanism is pluggable) and to retrieve them. This is in branch-2 and trunk, though I'm not sure which branch-2 release it will make it into. I'd like to add a capability into Slider to prompt the user for needed passwords and store them using CredentialProvider so they can be retrieved by an app later.
