Join us for the inaugural Apache Sentry meetup at Oracle's offices in NYC, on the evening of the last day of Strata + Hadoop World 2013 in New York.
(@ Oracle Offices, 120 Park Ave, 26th Floor -- Note: Bring your ID and check in with security in the lobby!)
We'll kick-off the meetup with the following presentation:
Getting Serious about Security with Sentry
Shreepadma Venugopalan - Lead Engineer for Sentry
Arvind Prabhakar - Engineering Manager for Sentry
Jacco Draaijer - Development Manager for Oracle Big Data
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.
Cloudera and Oracle are taking the lead on Sentry - a new open source authorization module that integrates with Hadoop-based SQL query engines. Key developers for the project will provide details on its implementation, including:
-Motivations for the project
-Key requirements that Sentry satisfies
-Utilizing Sentry in your applications
