How to secure sqoop data transfer channel

Contributor

Is there any way to secure the data transfer between the source and datanodes while using Sqoop?

I know we can use Kerberos for authentication but not sure if we have any way to secure the data transfer. Please advise.

You could use useSSL=true and requireSSL flag sqoop as mentioned below.

@jramakrishnan

This looks more like authentication solution than securing the data channels to eliminate the risk of having your data transfer in clear text. Am i missing anything here?
