Thanks to all who joined us on our Hortonworks/Voltage webinar, “Securing Hadoop: What are Your Options?” For those who couldn’t attend, we’re sorry we missed you. We’ve included a link to the webinar recording below, and please listen in!
On the webinar, Hortonworks’ Vinod Nair presented the recently-announced Apache Argus incubator: a central policy administration framework across security requirements for authentication, authorization, auditing and data protection. Sudeep Venkatesh, of Voltage Security, defined data-centric protection technologies that easily integrate with Hive, Sqoop, MapReduce and other Hadoop interfaces.
A number of questions were asked on the webinar—and we wanted to share some of the key ones here.
Q: How far has Hortonworks come in development for Windows?
Q: Are you going to support OAuth for authorizing a resource in Apache Argus?
Q: If data is protected at rest, using a data-centric encryption approach like those offered by Voltage, will that data still be encrypted when it travels through the network?
