Basic Authentication for webhdfs

Basic Authentication for webhdfs

Explorer

I have two HDFS clusters
A - Client's cluster on which i have no control
B - my cluster on which swebhdfs (secure webhdfs) is enabled

The client uses distcp to pull files from cluster B to cluster A.

I know that kerberos authentication is available for webhdfs, but i'm unable to find any other way to do authentication. Does anyone know of a basic or simple authentication mechanism for swebhdfs that i can setup on cluster B ?
