Subject [jira] [Created] (BIGTOP-410) Build secure version of HBase
Date Fri, 17 Feb 2012 19:54:57 GMT
Build secure version of HBase

                 Key: BIGTOP-410
             Project: Bigtop
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: General
            Reporter: Shaneal Manek
            Priority: Minor

To build an HBase that supports ACLs, kerberos auth, and other security features you have
to build it with the 'security' profile.

There is no major downside to doing this (running HBase w/o security is still the default
and works out of the box - you just have the option of enabling security in configs). However,
note that for security to work HBase must be built against a version of Hadoop that supports
security (e.g., 0.23+).

Due to an HBase release bug in 0.92 (HBASE-5288), the sources for security were omitted from
the release. This is already fixed on the 0.92.1 branch - so, as soon as that release takes
place, Bigtop can start building.

This patch is a little pre-emptive (it can't be applied till HBase 0.92.1 is released) - but
the issue will need to be tackled eventually no matter what.
