Securosis: Securing Hadoop: Security Recommendations for Hadoop Environments

Analyst Report by Adrian Lane, CTO, Securosis

This research paper lays out a series of recommended security controls for Hadoop, along with the rationale for each. The analysis is based upon conversations with dozens of data scientists, developers, IT staff, project managers, and security folks from companies of all sizes; as well as decades of security experience the Securosis team brings. These recommendations reflect threats and regulatory requirements IT must address, along with a survey of available technologies which practitioners are successfully deploying to meet these challenges.
