Subject [jira] [Created] (RANGER-1168) Add data masking for tag based policies
Date Tue, 06 Sep 2016 16:04:20 GMT
Nigel Jones created RANGER-1168:

             Summary: Add data masking for tag based policies
                 Key: RANGER-1168
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RANGER-1168
             Project: Ranger
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Nigel Jones

Currently in Hive its possible to create tag based policies. For example a policy can prevent
a user from accessing data in a column tagged as sensitive - with that classification likely
coming from Apache Atlas.

In order to support the principle of applying a policy to a classification rather than an
actual resort, we should extend Ranger & in particular the plugins such as hive to allow
tag based policies to support
 - data masking
 - row filtering

I believe this is important to support the principle of Apache Atlas being used to centrally
manage metadata & the classification of resources
