Apache Hadoop has found itself at the Core of Enterprise Computing in recent years. As many corporations move their core business operations to Big-Data systems based on Hadoop for analyzing/processing data, security becomes one of the critical factors in their technology selection process.
One project in the Apache umbrella that solely focuses on Hadoop security is Apache Ranger. Apache Ranger delivers a comprehensive approach to security for a Hadoop cluster. It provides central security policy administration across the core enterprise security requirements of authorization, accounting and data protection.
This talk will cover fundamental security aspects and then discuss security options available in Apache Hadoop ecosystem. Then, Apache Ranger will be covered in detail and with a demo, it will be shown how Ranger can be used to secure Hadoop ecosystem from a centralized web interface and various aspects of Security Administration. Finally, the talk will conclude with strategies and best practices to be used in securing enterprise data within Hadoop environment.
