As Hadoop based workloads are becoming ever more popular in the enterprise, the need for enterprise grade capabilities like active directory based authentication, multi-user support, and role based access control has never been more important. In this session, we are going to explore how you can create an HDInsight cluster joined to an Active Directory domain, configure a list of employees from the enterprise who can authenticate through Azure Active Directory to log on to HDInsight cluster. Anyone outside the enterprise cannot log on or access the HDInsight cluster. The enterprise admin can configure role based access control for Hive security using Apache Ranger, thus restricting access to data to only as much as needed. Finally, the admin can audit the data access by employees, and any changes done to access control policies, thus achieving a high degree of governance of their corporate resources.
