Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-13336) Consistent rules for security meta table protections
Date Thu, 26 Mar 2015 01:55:52 GMT
Andrew Purtell created HBASE-13336:

             Summary: Consistent rules for security meta table protections
                 Key: HBASE-13336
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-13336
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Andrew Purtell

The AccessController and VisibilityController do different things regarding protecting their
meta tables. The AC allows schema changes and disable/enable if the user has permission. The
VC unconditionally disallows all admin actions. Generally, bad things will happen if these
meta tables are damaged, disabled, or dropped. The likely outcome is random frequent (or constant)
server side op failures with nasty stack traces. We should have consistent and sensible rules
for protecting security meta tables.
