Privacera Documentation

Set up Varada connector in Trino with Privacera Plugin on Privacera Platform

  1. Create EC2 instance. See Varada requirements documentation to learn more.

  2. SSH into EC2 instance and switch to root user.

    sudo su - root
  3. Install Java 11.

    sudo amazon-linux-extras install java-openjdk11
  4. Install trino-server.

    cd /opt   
    mkdir -p /opt/trino   
    mkdir -p /opt/trino/data   
    cd /opt/trino/   
    tar -xzf trino-server-370.tar.gz   
    ln -s trino-server-370  trino-server   
    chmod +x trino-cli-370-executable.jar   
    ln -s trino-cli-370-executable.jar trino-cli
  5. Create the necessary configuration files in the /opt/trino/trino-server/etc directory. See the Trino documentation to learn more.

  6. Start trino-server.

     cd /opt/trino/trino-server   
    ./bin/launcher restart
  7. Connect trino-cli to verify trino service.

    ./trino-cli --catalog hive 
    select * from customer.customer_data;
  8. Install Privacera Plugin.

Deploy Varada Connector

  1. Download varada-trino connector, create the varada-install directory and unpack the tarball.

       mkdir /tmp/varada-install   
    tar -zxf /tmp/varada-trino-connector.tar.gz -C /tmp/varada-install
  2. Install:

    sudo python3 /tmp/varada-install/varada-connector-*-varada-con/varada/ -e /tmp/varada-install/varada-connector-*-varada-con/ -o hive -c varada -w r5d.4xlarge -m s3://privacera-dev-siva -p /opt/trino/trino-server/plugin/ -d /opt/trino/trino-server/etc/ -b 8088 -u my-cluster 
  3. Create workerDB directory:

    mkdir -p /var/lib/presto/varada/workerDB/
  4. Restart the trino-server:

    cd /opt/trino/trino-server   
    ./bin/launcher restart
  5. You can now test Privacera access control through trino-cli. To test the varada  catalog you will need to add policies in privacera_trino.
