Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1873) User permissions for Map/Reduce
Date Wed, 10 Oct 2007 21:43:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1873?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12533884
] 

Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE commented on HADOOP-1873:
------------------------------------------------

For preventing file/directory name guessing, we could append large random numbers to file
names.  Suppose we want to store foo.  We use the name foo2561346125341261461254 instead.
 Then, jobtracker could first get the file name by "ls foo*" and then read the file.  Other
users without directory lookup permission are not possible to guess the name.

> HADOOP-1298 and HADOOP-1701 add permissions and pluggable security for DFS files and
DFS accesses. Same users permission should work for Map/Reduce jobs as well. 
> User persmission should propegate from client to map/reduce tasks and all the file operations
should be subject to user permissions. This is transparent to the user (i.e. no changes to
user code should be required).
