Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-10430) KeyProvider Metadata should have an optional label, there should be a method to retrieve the metadata from all keys
Date Mon, 07 Apr 2014 15:16:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-10430?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13961913#comment-13961913

Larry McCay commented on HADOOP-10430:
--------------------------------------

[~tucu00]] - what do you think about making this a comma delimited or hashtag (#thatshowweroll)
based set of labels that could be used for any number of purposes?

I can think of a few purposes relative to classification, etc:

Governance policy may require varying rules for rolling keys based on data classification
level for instance.
Additional authorization checks could also be made based on group membership relative to the
classification of the key, etc.

This would be similar to the labels used in accumulo for cell level security.

> Being able to attach an optional label (and show it when displaying metadata) will enable
giving some context on the keys.
