I will submit a patch for prototype later

>                 Key: HDFS-5126
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-5126
>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: security

>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: features, security
> I propose a authorized user impersonate mechanism for fine grain (path level) access
control in HDFS.
> In short, owner of data encrypt the path with a shared secret, and other user use the
encrypted path to call namenode service (create/read/delete file). Namenode decrypt the path
to validate the access and execute the operation as owner of the data if valid. It consists
> 1. a ACLFileSystem extends DistributedFileSystem, which wrap the create/open/delete/etc.
RPC calls, and send the encrypted path to namenode
> 2. authenticator(embedded in namenode), which decrypt the path and execute the call as
owner of the data
> With authorized user impersonate, we can develop a authorization manager to check whether
a path level access is permitted.
> A detailed explanation can be found in maillist:
