@Roberto Sancho Apache Knox is good alternative but not the best one in comparison with Kerberos.

adn what about oauth???

@Roberto Sancho On seperate note from Knox...

You can integrate the authentication with AD/LDAP. Users can use their AD credentials to access the stack

@Roberto Sancho Please let me know if it was useful. I highly recommend Kerberos.

Please read Bosco's reply on this thread

Does it mean if the cluster is kerberized, we don't need Knox ? Only Ranger installation is enough.

@Roberto Sancho , NIS seems to be workaround, but i didn't find it secure. You can get about it in : "http://aput.net/~jheiss/krbldap/howto.html". But i will suggest to go with Kerberos.
