Subject [HBase Security] Meta table operations should be authorized
Date Fri, 15 Jun 2012 04:39:48 GMT
Hi Devs,

As part of access control, read/write to meta table also should be checked
for authorization.
I've seen some scripts also internally invoking flush/compact on .META.

Example: drop table from "HBase shell" invokes flush and compact on .META.

IMO, scripts needs to be corrected. And I don't see need for calling
flush/compact on .META.

Any different opinion?
