MapR 5.0 Documentation : Configuring Browsers for SPNEGO


The process below configures your Firefox browser for SPNEGO connections. Note that these instructions are specific for Firefox version 40.0.3x - the details may differ slightly if you are using a different version:

  1. Open the Firefox configuration page by navigating to the address about:config.
  2. In the Search text field, enter network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris to bring up that property.
  3. Right-click on network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris and select Modify to edit the property and enter the hostnames of the web server nodes in your cluster as a comma-separated list.
  4. Click OK.

Chromium on Ubuntu

To configure the Chromium browser on Ubuntu for SPNEGO, edit the /etc/chromium-browser/default file and add the following property:

CHROMIUM_FLAGS="--user-data-dir --auth-server-whitelist=<web server host names>"

The --user-data-dir flag enables the root user to launch the browser. The --auth-server-whitelist flag specifies the web servers that support SPNEGO authentication.
