From Hadoop Summit 2015, San Jose
From Apache BigData 2016, Vancouver
Hadoop has long had strong authentication via integration with Kerberos, authorization via User/Group/Other HDFS permissions, and auditing via the audit log. Recent developments in Hadoop have added HDFS file access control lists, pluggable encryption key provider APIs, HDFS snapshots, and HDFS encryption zones. These features combine to give important new data protection features that every company should be using to protect their data. This talk will cover what the new features are and when and how to use them in enterprise production environments. Upcoming features including columnar encryption in the ORC columnar format will also be covered.
