Noble Paul commented on SOLR-9541:
----------------------------------

PKIAuthenticationPlugin is cheap. But not having it initialized can show up 
other errors in the rest API. The public-key is supposed to be always 
unsecured. There is no vulnerability in exposing your public key

> Support configurable authentication mechanism for internode communication

> SOLR-7849 introduced PKI based authentication mechanism for internode 
> communication. The main reason for introducing SOLR-7849 was,
> >> Relying on every Authentication plugin to secure the internode 
> >> communication is error prone. 
> At Cloudera we are using Kerberos protocol for all communication without any 
> issues (i.e. between client/server as well as server/server). We should make 
> this internode authentication mechanism configurable (with default as PKI 
> based mechanism). This will allow users to decide the appropriate 
> authentication mechanism based on their security requirements.
