In previous releases of HDP, client-side caching of keys could result in unexpected behavior with WebHDFS.
Consider the following steps:
1. Create two keys in ranger KMS: user1_key and user2_key
2. Add two resource based policy one per above user.
User1_encr_policy: Allow the Decrypt_EEK permissions to user1 only
User2_encr_policy: Allow the Decrypt_EEK permissions to user2 only.
3. Add two encryption zones.
user1_zone (using user1_key) and user2_zone (using user2_key)
4. Run the following command, you may be able to access the content of test.csv file from user1_zone using user2
curl -i -L "http://sandbox.hortonworks.com:50070/webhdfs/v1/customer/user1_zone/test.csv?user.name=user2&op=OPEN"
HDP-188.8.131.52 includes HADOOP-13749, which fixes the caching issue. The FS cache and KMS provider cache can be disabled by changing the configuration as follows:
