Access control overview#
Starburst Enterprise platform (SEP) and the included enhanced connectors enable you to control access to the data exposed and accessible by SEP 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 and authorization setup must be chosen so that it is compatible with the authentication system in use.
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 Platform
Hive access control with Privacera Platform
Availability varies based on the connector in use.
