             Summary: Fine-grained authorization library for HAS
                 Key: HADOOP-9813
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9813
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: security
    Affects Versions: 3.0.0
            Reporter: Jerry Chen


This is to define and provide authorization enforcement library for Hadoop services. It provides
the utilities to load and enforce security policies through related services provided by the
Authorization Service of HAS. Hadoop components call these utilities to enforce the authorization
policies. Take HDFS for example, when a user is trying to access a file or a folder, name
node will call into this library and pass the resource identifier and the rights needed. The
scope of this is as follows:
* Define and implement authorization policy enforcement API to be utilized by Hadoop services
to enforce authorization policies.
* Define and implement authorization policy load and sync facilities.
* Define and implement authorization policy evaluation engine.
