Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7367) Snapshot coprocessor and ACL security
Date Tue, 18 Dec 2012 00:02:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7367?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13534443#comment-13534443

Matteo Bertozzi commented on HBASE-7367:

[~andrew.purtell@gmail.com] one question, without thinking at the snapshot for one moment.

I'm a GLOBAL ADMIN, I create a table. 
The table is enabled by default (every one can now write on it)
meanwhile I set the permission... (too late someone has already polluted the table)

is that a problem? how do you solve that?

This is my main concern with the "clone from snapshot". Since I create a new table with the
snapshot data and no acl, meanwhile I set the permission someone can read my data that should
be protected.

if you have a workaround or by your experience you think that this is not a real problem,
I'm +1 for the global admin check instead of disabling the feature if the ACL coprocessor
is enabled.

> After the first step, we can discuss how to handle the snapshot/restore/clone.
> Is saving and restoring the _acl_ related rights, the right way? maybe after 3 months
we don't want to give the access the guys listed in the old _acl_...
