Date Thu, 02 Feb 2012 22:20:55 GMT


Carl Steinbach updated HIVE-2241:

    Component/s: Authorization
> Thrift MetaStore interface bypasses authorization checks
> --------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: HIVE-2241
>                 URL:
>             Project: Hive
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Authorization, JDBC, Metastore, ODBC, Security
>            Reporter: Carl Steinbach
>            Assignee: Enis Soztutar
> 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.
