About This Book

  • Master the key concepts behind Hadoop security as well as how to secure a Hadoop-based Big Data ecosystem
  • Understand and deploy authentication, authorization, and data encryption in a Hadoop-based Big Data platform
  • Administer the auditing and security event monitoring system

Who This Book Is For

This book is great for Hadoop practitioners (solution architects, Hadoop administrators, developers, and Hadoop project managers) who are looking to get a good grounding in what Kerberos is all about and who wish to learn how to implement end-to-end Hadoop security within an enterprise setup. It’s assumed that you will have some basic understanding of Hadoop as well as be familiar with some basic security concepts.

In Detail

Security of Big Data is one of the biggest concerns for enterprises today. How do we protect the sensitive information in a Hadoop ecosystem? How can we integrate Hadoop security with existing enterprise security systems? What are the challenges in securing Hadoop and its ecosystem? These are the questions which need to be answered in order to ensure effective management of Big Data. Hadoop, along with Kerberos, provides security features which enable Big Data management and which keep data secure.

This book is a practitioner’s guide for securing a Hadoop-based Big Data platform. This book provides you with a step-by-step approach to implementing end-to-end security along with a solid foundation of knowledge of the Hadoop and Kerberos security models.

This practical, hands-on guide looks at the security challenges involved in securing sensitive data in a Hadoop-based Big Data platform and also covers the Security Reference Architecture for securing Big Data. It will take you through the internals of the Hadoop and Kerberos security models and will provide detailed implementation steps for securing Hadoop. You will also learn how the internals of the Hadoop security model are implemented, how to integrate Enterprise Security Systems with Hadoop security, and how you can manage and control user access to a Hadoop ecosystem seamlessly. You will also get acquainted with implementing audit logging and security incident monitoring within a Big Data platform.
