As more corporations turn to Hadoop to store and process their most valuable data, the risks with a potential breach of those systems increases exponentially. This practical book not only shows security architects how to protect Hadoop data from unauthorized access, but also how to limit the ability of an attacker to corrupt or modify data in the event of a security breach.

Security is typically the longest phase of any Hadoop project. In this book, Cloudera professionals Ben Spivey and Joey Echeverria provide a thorough treatment of Hadoop security architecture and implementation to help architects navigate the common challenges of this phase. Example case studies demonstrate how the book’s material is immediately applicable to your use cases.
