Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-78) Authentication infrastructure for Hive
Date Fri, 18 Sep 2009 16:44:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-78?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12757252#action_12757252

Namit Jain commented on HIVE-78:

coping a earlier comment from the jira:

I agree that authentication and authorization (much of what I have been talking about in this
comment), need to be separated out and while we use the directory infrastructure for authentication,
we should store the authorization information in the metastore as that is specific to our
application and no sane directory administrator would allow us to touch the directory to support
custom attributes.

I agree with the above - it might be a good idea to not do password handling in hive in the
first step - we can add it later if need be. Let us assume that the user has already been
authenticated by some external entity,
and proceed from there. What do you think ?
