Besides the builtin authentication methods, kyuubi supports custom authentication implementations of org.apache.kyuubi.service.authentication.PasswdAuthenticationProvider.

package org.apache.kyuubi.service.authentication


trait PasswdAuthenticationProvider {

   * The authenticate method is called by the Kyuubi Server authentication layer
   * to authenticate users for their requests.
   * If a user is to be granted, return nothing/throw nothing.
   * When a user is to be disallowed, throw an appropriate [[AuthenticationException]].
   * @param user     The username received over the connection request
   * @param password The password received over the connection request
   * @throws AuthenticationException When a user is found to be invalid by the implementation
  def authenticate(user: String, password: String): Unit
