Revoke permissions to a superuser on Hbase

New Contributor

Is there a way to revoke administration rights to a superadmin and limit it to the owner in a HBase table/namespace?

I don't want to use Kerberos :)

No, by definition the superuser has all permission to perform actions on the system. You can change who the superuser is, if you choose.

Without strong authentication via Kerberos, you're wasting your time trying to apply any kind of authorization rules to your system because anyone will be able to masquerade as whoever they want.
