Need help on implementing 2 factor authentication on Hadoop

New Contributor


We want to implement 2 factor authentication on Hadoop cluster.

Currently we have configured Kerberos for AD authentication with username and password.

Does anybody have experience on multi factor authentication on hadoop? How can we integrate second factor authentication like RSA SecurID with Kerberos, and how can we configure the components like Hue, hive, hdfs or any additional component which needs to be configured, in order to provide 2 factor authentication with username, password and RSA SecurID token?

I think we need to configure pkinit/pam for this but I couldn't find any technical documentation.
