Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-2241) Thrift MetaStore interface bypasses authorization checks
Date Mon, 27 Jun 2011 17:02:47 GMT
Thrift MetaStore interface bypasses authorization checks

                 Key: HIVE-2241
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: JDBC, Metastore, ODBC, Security
            Reporter: Carl Steinbach

Hive's authorization mechanism works with DML and DDL statements only. Authorization checks
are not applied when a Thrift client directly accesses the Metastore's Thrift interface, e.g.
create_table(), drop_table(), alter_table(), get_databases(), get_tables(), etc.

Catalog functions such as get_databases() and get_tables() are directly accessed by JDBC and
ODBC drivers.
