Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-6826) Plugin interface to enable delegation of HDFS authorization assertions
Date Thu, 04 Dec 2014 21:33:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6826?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14234651#comment-14234651
] 

Suresh Srinivas commented on HDFS-6826:
---------------------------------------

[~atm], I see your point. I agree with it. The root cause of this seems to be the place where
we are adding pluggability - FSPermissionChecker, which ties the access control implementation
to permissions.

How about this? Lets say we add pluggable AccessControlPolicy that gets called before permission
checker. One could have custom policies  that can check whether access is allowed based on
wild card paths, where the access is coming from etc. and allow the operation.Policy implementation
decides to allow access, disallow access, or continue (to FSPermissionChecker). Would that
work? Thought?

> 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.
