Many Hadoop clusters lack even the most basic security and governance controls. This is due to several factors: some security features did not exist as recently as two years ago, and the complexity of Hadoop security has proved daunting to administrators. Nonetheless, with the emergency of regulation such as GDPR, organizations can no longer afford to overlook the criticality of security and governance.
Mark Donsky, Andre Araujo, Syed Rafice, and Mubashir Kazia walk you through securing a Hadoop cluster, with special attention to GDPR. You’ll start with a cluster with no security and then add security features related to authentication, authorization, encryption of data at rest, encryption of data in transit, and complete data governance.
For each security feature, you’ll cover the following topics:
