Avery Ching commented on GIRAPH-37:

I don't know what Jakob has planned for security, but thanks for raising that 
point.  I have mixed feelings about security.  On the one hand it's a nice 
feature to have for clients that require it and wouldn't be able to use Giraph 
without it.  On the other hand, it is the sole reason for the nasty 
preprocessor code (munge) in Giraph (not because of security per se but rather 
about how security is implemented and not backwards compatible).  It would be 
great if security were optional without preprocessor code in Giraph.  I'm sure 
Jakob and other Giraph devs have an opinion as well and will chime in.
