In Cloudera Hadoop there are few components that are used to implemented Data Encryption at rest: The Key Management Server (KMS) uses the Key Trustee Server as the enderlying keystore instead of the file-based Java KeyStore(JKS) used by the default Hadoop KMS. Cloudera Navigator Key Trustee Server is the actual keystore for the encryption keys … Continue reading Cloudera Hadoop Data Encryption at rest Notes

Some Wireshark filter fields match against multiple protocol fields. For example, "ip.addr" matches against both the IP source and destination addresses in the IP header. The same is true for "tcp.port", "udp.port", "eth.addr", and others. It's important to note that ip.addr == 10.43.54.65 is equivalent to ip.src == 10.43.54.65 or ip.dst == 10.43.54.65 This can be counterintuitive in some cases. … Continue reading Wireshark commands
Reference: http://website4everything.blogspot.com/2015/04/connecting-tableau-to-hive-server-2.html The basic steps to connect Tableau to Cloudera Hive or Impala with Kerberos authentication involves the following steps: Download and Install the MIT Kerberos Client for WindowSet the C:\ProgramData\MIT\Kerberos5\krb5.ini with the Kerberos realm and server details(Optional) KRB5CCNAME system environment variable may need to be set at times to a temporary value: FILE:C:\temp\kerberos\krb5cacheStart the MIT … Continue reading Tableau Desktop connect to Cloudera Hadoop using Kerberos
Common Kerberos commands: 1.Change password of a principal(user) $ kadmin.local kadmin.local: cpw <principalname> Enter password for princal "principalname@REALM.COM": 2.initialize a kerberos ticket $ kinit <principalname> To get detailed verbose info use below options: $ KRB5_TRACE=/dev/stdout kinit -V 3. Destroy the current ticket: $ kdestroy 4. Check the status of Kerberos KDC $ systemctl status kadmin $ systemctl … Continue reading Kerberos commands
The following blog shows how to access a kerberized hadoop cluster from a Chrome browser in laptop. https://community.hortonworks.com/articles/28537/user-authentication-from-windows-workstation-to-hd.html This will work mostly except change the below: 3. network.negotiate-auth.gsslib = C:\Program Files\MIT\Kerberos\bin\gssapi64.dll instead of the gssapi32.dll since we mostly use 64-bit Firefox which doesnt work with the 32bit dll.

Following python code makes REST calls to a secure Kerberos enabled Hadoop cluster to use webhdfs REST api to get file data: You need to first run $ knit userid@REALM to authenticate and initiate the Kerberos ticket for the user.Make sure the python modules requests and requests_kerberos have been installed. Otherwise install it for example: … Continue reading Run a Python program to access Hadoop webhdfs and Hive with Kerberos enabled
Following steps are needed to run a Java program in Hadoop with Kerberos security enabled: 1. Create a text file named FileCount.java and store it in your home directory such as /home/userid 2. Copy paste the below code into the file FileCount.java . Change the hadoop hostname from quickstart.cloudera:8020 to the correct host. import java.io.*; import … Continue reading Run a Java program in Hadoop with Kerberos enabled.
