Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6222) Add per-KeyValue Security, get federal funding for HBase?
Date Sat, 16 Jun 2012 20:10:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6222?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13393377#comment-13393377

Lars George commented on HBASE-6222:
------------------------------------

I agree with the need of discussing what the objective is and how to get there with the least
amount of impact on existing code. That is why I like the idea of reusing the type field.


I would only add one more type (the one mentioned) and that, together with a global switch,
would trigger the code to parse the tags located after the key but before the value (or maybe
after the value as it is length prefixed). That tags once parsed can be access then by the
coprocessor to do the filtering etc.

So we would need a way to attach tags to a KV as well as access them once they are parsed
out. Seems reasonable?

> "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?
