Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-78) Authentication infrastructure for Hive

On the first looks Realms seems to be a nice fit for this problem.

One capability that is missing there and which may become an issue later is the ability to
compose roles into higher level roles. To me it seems that roles are strictly flat and are
not hierarchical, so I cannot create an admin role that has the basic roles within it . Can
this be achieved with Realms? I have not used it before so I am not sure that if it is achievable?

The other issue that I can think of is whether Realms is generic enough to protect any kind
of a resource and not just limited to web resourrces. We have tables and partitions, servers
etc. Could you elaborate on how this would work for the capabilities that I listed in my previous
