Security in Hadoop is a challenging topic. Hadoop was built without very much of a security framework in mind, and so over the years the distribution vendors have added new authentication layers. Kerberos, Knox, Ranger, Sentry – there are a lot of security components to consider in this fluid landscape. Meanwhile, the demand for security is increasing thanks to increased data privacy concerns, exacerbated by the recent string of security breaches at major corporations.
This week Wikibon’s Jeff Kelly will give his perspective on how to secure sensitive data in Hadoop. It should be a very interesting and useful Hadoop security webinar and I hope you’ll join us. Just visit http://www.wandisco.com/webinars to register.
