Next-Generation Access Control for Hadoop, HBase and other NoSQL Databases

Tomer Shiran View Bio

Organizations need to be able to control who can access what data. Today's volume and variety of data requires a new approach to access control. For example, it will soon be impractical for organizations to manage a standalone, centralized repository of permissions for every column/row of every table. Recent open source innovations such as Apache Drill are making it possible to manage permissions in Hadoop and NoSQL databases via virtual datasets. Users can create virtual datasets by specifying SQL queries that select the data to be shared, and using standard file system or database permissions to specify who can access the virtual datasets. In this talk we'll introduce these innovations and explain how you can use them today to provide security in a more scalable and decentralized fashion.
