> This feature introduces a POSIX-like permissions model for DFS in Hadoop 0.16. The user
guide describes the behavior users of DFS will experience. In this release, the user identity
model is very elementary: you are who your host says you are. It is understood that this is
not "secure" in any meaningful sense, but rather the permissions model allows a cooperative
community to share file system resources in an organized fashion. The user identity model
will evolve in the coming months.
> As mentioned in the draft, the content of the guide will be incorporated into the regular
Hadoop documentation from Forrest. This document is being published as an early preview.
