Historically, each Hadoop component offers its own method of access control so each one needs its own set of permissions rules - even when they are accessing the same data in Hadoop. This is an administrative nightmare that slows the adoption of Hadoop when sensitive data is involved. Apache Sentry is a framework that enables fine grained, role based authorization for multiple Hadoop ecosystem components. Apache Sentry is a highly modular system that support authorization for various data models like Database style schemas, search indexes etc. It comes with out of the box support for SQL query frameworks like Apache Hive and Cloudera Impala Apache Hive, extending the table privileges to underlying HDFS storage, as well as open source search framework Apache Solr. This session will present an overview of Apache Sentry.
