Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-12823) Visibility label security at limited localized level
Date Thu, 08 Jan 2015 19:11:34 GMT
Jerry He created HBASE-12823:
--------------------------------

             Summary: Visibility label security at limited localized level
                 Key: HBASE-12823
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-12823
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: security
    Affects Versions: 1.0.0, 2.0.0, 0.98.10
            Reporter: Jerry He
             Fix For: 2.0.0


Currently, if visibility label security is enabled for a HBase instance, after VisibilityController
is configured, the cell level visibility label filtering will kick in across the HBase instance.

Cell level visibility label filtering has non-negligible performance impact.

On the other hand, in many use cases, only a small portion of the overall data needs visibility
label protection.

If we can support  visibility label security at a limited and localized level, we will broaden
the use cases and the adoption of this feature.

We should be able to support visibility label security at per table or per column family level.
This is quite common in many other HBase features.

Cell level visibility label filtering will only be enabled and kick in for the tables or column
families that the user designates.
