Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6222) Add per-KeyValue Security
Date Mon, 18 Jun 2012 06:13:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6222?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13393676#comment-13393676

Laxman commented on HBASE-6222:
-------------------------------

Good to see lot of interest and discussion in this.

I couldn't understand the above discussion completely.
But, I've some basic questions.
1) Do we really have any known use-cases for KV based access control? 
2) Does scalability affected badly for the users who needs at KV level access control?

How about other approach of supporting access control through *HBase views*?
If we want to restrict access for a CF/CQ and a set of rows to a user/group then create a
view for that set and control access through view.

It's just an idea based on my understanding of RDBMS (Oracle). Not really sure if this is
really feasible in HBase. Please respond with use-cases and comments.

> "The  Senate Armed Services Committee version of the fiscal 2013 national defense authorization
act (S. 3254) would require DoD agencies to foreswear the Accumulo NoSQL database after Sept.
30, 2013, unless the DoD CIO certifies that there exists either no viable commercial open
source database with security features comparable to [Accumulo] (such as the HBase or Cassandra
databases)..."
> Not sure what a 'commercial open source database' is, and I'm not sure whats going on
in the article, but tra-la-la'ing, if we had per-KeyValue 'security' like Accumulo's, we might
put ourselves in the running for federal contributions?
