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
