The AccessController Coprocessor for HBase, only a global administrator can take, clone, or restore a snapshot, and these actions do not capture the ACL rights. This means that restoring a table preserves the ACL rights of the existing table, and cloning a table creates a new table that has no ACL rights until the administrator adds them.
