Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-10654) Support pluggable mechanism to specify Service Authorization
Date Mon, 02 Jun 2014 16:33:02 GMT
Benoy Antony created HADOOP-10654:

             Summary: Support pluggable mechanism to specify Service Authorization
                 Key: HADOOP-10654
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-10654
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: security
            Reporter: Benoy Antony
            Assignee: Benoy Antony

The service authorization can be specified via hadoop-policy.xml for different services(protocols)
using ACLS ( list of users and groups) . The other subtasks will improve the standard behavior.

In some case, further special handling is required to restrict access based on few other external
characteristics of the user for special clusters. Such special authorization requirements
can be met if it is possible to plugin authorization mechanisms at this point.
