Does HDP support certificate for Kerberos authentication (pkinit) ?

Explorer

Hi,

A Kerberized HDP cluster supports authentication with id/password, through kinit (for the CLI) or a keytab (for services).

Is HDP (2.6) supporting Kerberos authentication with certificate, through pkinit (for the CLI) or a (?) keytab (for services) ?

Thanks.

Regards,

Dominique

To be more precise (or straight to the point, if you want):

is HDP working when using certificate-based Kerberos for authenticating Hadoop components (like DataNode), instead of using login/password-based Kerberos authentication ?

Thanks.
