Announcing the Technical Preview of Apache Knox Gateway

Perimeter Security for Apache Hadoop

Just yesterday, we talked about our roadmap for Security in Enterprise Hadoop. At our Security labs page you can see in one place the security roadmap and efforts underway across Hadoop and their timelines.

Security is often described as rings of defense. Continuing this analogy the Apache community has been working to create a perimeter security solution for Hadoop. This effort is Apache Knox Gateway (Apache Knox) and we are happy to announce the Technical Preview of Apache Knox. With this technical preview Apache Knox is one step closer to general availability.

Apache Knox is the Web/REST API Gateway solution for Hadoop. It provides a single access point to access all of Hadoop resources over REST. It also enables the integration of enterprise identity management solutions and provides numerous perimeter security features for REST/HTTP access to Hadoop.

Get Involved

You can be involved in many ways: from providing feedback on the roadmap, to contributing code to trying out Apache Knox Gateway.

Thank You,

The Apache Knox and Security Team
