Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-78) Authentication infrastructure for Hive
Date Thu, 17 Sep 2009 22:35:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-78?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12756823#action_12756823

Ashish Thusoo commented on HIVE-78:


I agree with Edwards thought here. We have to foster a collaborative environment and not be
dismissive of each others ideas and approaches. Much of the work in the community happens
on a volunteer basis and whatever time anyone puts on the project is a bonus and should be
respected by all. 

It does make sense to keep authentication separate from authorization because in most environments
there are already directories which deal with the former. Creating yet another store for passwords
just leads to an administration nightmare as the account administrators have to create accounts
for new users at multiple places. So lets just focus on authorization and let the directory
infrastructure deal with authentication. Will look at your patch as well.
