Security info and tools for Hadoop?



0
When a company really wants to bring Hadoop into the enterprise, as a Hadooper we would want to make sure there are security policies and processes in place in front of the Hadoop [cluster]... can please lets us know or someone share experience or knowledge about security info and tools for Hadoop? Is Kerberos module for Apache the only option?

Thanks

hi Joe,

To enable security for accessing hadoop services, the administrator should enable "Kerberos" security authentication & authorization which is by default supported by Hadoop.

Here are few links which will help you started

Thanks
