SSO solution for a big data apps

Expert Contributor

Hi All,

Hadoop uses kerberos for authentication. What would be a best way to implement SSO authentication for big data applications such as web-apps, BI tools etc. which talk to hadoop. One uniform solution across a diverse set of products and apps.

Thanks,

Avijeet

Hi @Avijeet Dash the piece you probably require in this case is a combination of Knox, and any of the other SSO solutions that Knox supports (e.g. SAMLv2, Siteminder and OAM).

Hope that helps!
