Note, that through the use of HDFS ACL (available in Hadoop 2.4 onwards) you have a lot of flexibility in controlling access to the file system, which in turn provides more flexibility with Storage Based Authorization. This functionality is available as of Hive 0.14 (HIVE-7583).

While relying on Storage based authorization for restricting access, you still need to enable one of the security options 2 or 3 listed below or use FallbackHiveAuthorizer to protect actions within the HiveServer2 instance.

Fall Back Authorizer

You need to use Hive 2.3.4 or 3.1.1 or later to use Fall Back Authorizer.
