With Knox, we support SSO, so for all the REST APIs that you expose to your Hadoop end users, you can support the SSO through Knox. For example, when you deploy Knox, it supports CA SiteMinder, Oracle Access Management Suite or Tivoli Access Manager. You can deploy Knox with an Apache HTTP Server and leverage its integration, or you can directly integrate with Knox.

IBM Tivoli Access Manager (TAM) is an authentication and authorization solution for corporate web services, operating systems, and existing applications.[1] Tivoli Access Manager runs on various operating system platforms such as Unix (AIX, Solaris, HP-UX), Linux, and Microsoft Windows. It has been renamed as IBM Security Access Manager (ISAM), in line with the renaming of other Tivoli products, such as TIM turned ISIM.

Specifically Knox supports TAM now ISAM via pre-authenticated headers. You can find out more here: http://knox.apache.org/books/knox-0-6-0/user-guide.html#Preauthenticated+SSO+Provider
