Re: Authentication on HBase by an Android APP

You can consider talking to a REST-API based 'HBase REST Server', which
would make more sense to do (It acts like a gateway, so your client apps
don't need to connect to a large bunch of cluster hosts).

In addition, the REST service also accepts providing a custom
authentication plugin, via the standard Hadoop Auth filter plugins:
