"Apache Sentry: Enterprise-grade Security for Hadoop"
Cloudera, Xuefu Zhang and Srayva Tirukkovalur
Apache Hadoop offers strong support for authentication and coarse grained authorization - but this is not necessarily enough to meet the demands of enterprise applications and compliance requirements. Providing fine-grained access to data will enable organizations to store more sensitive information in Hadoop; only those users with the appropriate privileges will ever see that sensitive data.
Apache Sentry (incubating) is a new open source authorization module that integrates with Hadoop-based SQL query engines (Hive and Impala). In this talk, two of its developers will provide details on its implementation, as well as a short demo.
