Subject [jira] Updated: (HIVE-842) Authentication Infrastructure for Hive
Date Thu, 30 Sep 2010 21:59:36 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-842?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Todd Lipcon updated HIVE-842:

    Attachment: hive-842.txt

Here's a "preview" patch of this work. A few notes:
- This checks in a bunch of Thrift classes that are in Thrift trunk. Thrift is currently in
rc phase for an 0.5.0 release, so we can ditch these thrift classes out of Hive as soon as
that's out (probably before this patch is even ready for commit)
- There are still some javadocs that could be improved a little bit.
- There's currently not any integration into the "guts" of Hive - we simply assume the calling
user's identity as soon as the RPC is received. I think that's OK for the scope of this patch,
as discussed above.

There's a bit of a lurking bug, I believe, due to HADOOP-6982, but it's shouldn't be major.

> This issue deals with the authentication (user name,password) infrastructure. Not the
authorization components that specify what a user should be able to do.
