HDP Security Related

Hi,

We are using HDP2.6.5. I have the following questions with respect to configuring security to our HDP cluster. Solicit responses from experts in the community:

  1. We want to restrict access to the Storm UI only through the Ambari dashboard. Alternatively, we want Storm UI to ask for username and password, which are controlled through AD. Is this achievable?
  2. We dont have Knox in our setup. But only want to configure Ambari with AD integration. While Knox is recommended from Hortonworks perspective, wondering whether there are any potential security holes if we dont have Knox in our setup?
  3. Can Ranger be integrated with AD such that authentication works through AD?

Thanks in Advance

Yes, this is supported.

See https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP3/HDP-3.0.1/configuring-ranger-authe-with-unix-ldap-ad/...
