Authorization

Authorization is a basic security requirement in a digital environment.

Authorization controls what users can and cannot access within a system. These permissions include viewing, editing, using, or controlling information. In a physical environment, this can also include accessing servers, rooms, and devices.

Apache Ranger is a component of CDP that provides authorization solutions to your cluster. Ranger defines the policies that determine what users can and cannot access.

The owner of a Google Doc can share their document with others. When sharing, they can set the access permissions of others as either editors, viewers, or commenters to determine their level of interaction with the file.
