Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-11481) TableSnapshotInputFormat javadoc wrongly claims HBase "enforces security"
Date Tue, 08 Jul 2014 21:08:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11481?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14055540#comment-14055540
] 

Jonathan Hsieh commented on HBASE-11481:
----------------------------------------

Can we fix the capitalization of HBase in the first line to be 'hbase'?  Otherwise lgtm +1.

{code}
Only the HBase user can read from
- * snapshot files and data files. HBase also enforces security because all the requests are
handled
- * by the server layer, and the user cannot read from the data files directly.
+ * snapshot files and data files.

> In the Javadoc for TableSnapshotInputFormat, we have this:

> HBase also enforces security because all the requests are handled by the server layer,

> {quote}
> The snapshot input format operates on HFiles directly, that's how it gains its performance
benefits. No requests are handled by the 'server layer'.
> Later the Javadoc correctly states the implications:
> {quote}
> Note that, given other users access to read from snapshot/data files will completely
circumvent the access control enforced by HBase.
