Access control overview#
SEP, and the included enhanced connectors, enable you to control access to the data exposed and accessible by Presto and the configured catalogs. The access control systems all follow role-based access control mechanisms with users, groups, roles, privileges and objects.
The access control/authorization set up needs to be chosen so that it is compatible with the used authentication system.
SEP provides additional features suitable for different levels and mechanism for access control:
Global access control with Apache Ranger
Hive access control with Apache Ranger
Global access control with Privacera Ranger
Hive access control with Privacera Ranger
Availability varies based on the used connector.
