re: Cloudera Brings Role-Based Security To Hadoop
After press time, Hortonworks offered the following statement about Sentry from Shaun Connolly, VP of Corporate Strategy at Hortonworks:

"The capabilities that Cloudera is targeting make sense and are valuable. Since Cloudera Sentry (previously called Cloudera Access Server) plugs into HiveServer2, including it into the Apache Hive project would make logical sense. With that said, by
separating this work from Apache Hive, Cloudera is introducing a new authorization
model for ClouderaG«™not 'for Hadoop.' Unfortunately Sentry's broader community benefit may be limited. Hortonworks engineers working within the Apache Hive community are open to working with Cloudera on integrating these capabilities directly into the Apache Hive project."

See my concluding comments above about a single approach to security being something that would be for the good of all Hadoop users and distributors.
