Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-6826) Plugin interface to enable delegation of HDFS authorization assertions
Date Tue, 09 Sep 2014 21:40:30 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6826?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14127603#comment-14127603
] 

Alejandro Abdelnur commented on HDFS-6826:
------------------------------------------

[~jnp], the {{AuthorizationProviderProxyClientProtocol}} does not do any harm being there
the whole time, I would prefer to keep it to avoid having to propagate to the {{ClientNamenodeProtocolServerSideTranslatorPB}}
the knowledge of the plugin being used. What is your concern in having it always?

> When Hbase data, HiveMetaStore data or Search data is accessed via services (Hbase region
servers, HiveServer2, Impala, Solr) the services can enforce permissions on corresponding
entities (databases, tables, views, columns, search collections, documents). It is desirable,
when the data is accessed directly by users accessing the underlying data files (i.e. from
a MapReduce job), that the permission of the data files map to the permissions of the corresponding
data entity (i.e. table, column family or search collection).
> To enable this we need to have the necessary hooks in place in the NameNode to delegate
authorization to an external system that can map HDFS files/directories to data entities and
resolve their permissions based on the data entities permissions.
> I’ll be posting a design proposal in the next few days.
