OLAP Authentication and Authorization via Query Re-writing

Keywords: Data warehouses; Data security; Query processing

Abstract:
Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) has become an increasingly important and prevalent component of Decision Support Systems. OLAP is associated with a data model known as a cube, a multi-dimensional representation of the core measures and relationships within the associated organization. While numerous cube generation and processing algorithms have been presented in the literature, little effort has been made to address the unique security and authentication requirements of the model. In particular, the hierarchical nature of the cube allows users to bypass - either intentionally or unintentionally - partial constraints defined at alternate aggregation levels. In this paper, we present an authentication framework that builds upon an algebra designed specifically for OLAP domains. It is Object-Oriented in nature and uses query re-writing rules to ensure consistent data access across all levels of the conceptual model. The process is largely transparent to the user, though notification is provided in cases in which a subset of the original request is returned. We demonstrate the scope of our framework with a series of common OLAP queries. The end result is an intuitive but powerful approach to database authentication that is uniquely tailored to the OLAP domain.
