Druid pac4j based Security extension

Apache Druid Extension to enable OpenID Connect based Authentication for Druid Processes using pac4j as the underlying client library. This can be used with any authentication server that supports same e.g. Okta. The pac4j authenticator should only be used at the router node to enable a group of users in existing authentication server to interact with Druid cluster, using the web console.

This extension also provides a JWT authenticator that validates ID Tokens associated with a request. ID Tokens are attached to the request under the Authorization header with the bearer token prefix - Bearer . This authenticator is intended for services to talk to Druid by initially authenticating with an OIDC server to retrieve the ID Token which is then attached to every Druid request.

This extension does not support JDBC client authentication.
