Large Scale Encryption in Hadoop Environment: Challenges and Solutions
Data is growing at an enormous rate in the present world. One of the finest and most popular technologies available for handling and processing that enormous amount of data is the Hadoop ecosystem. Enterprises are increasingly relying on Hadoop for storing their valuable data and processing it. However, Hadoop is still evolving. There are many vulnerability found in Hadoop which can question on the security of the sensitive information that enterprises are storing on it. In this paper, security issues associated with the framework have been identified. We have also tried to give a brief overview on the currently available solutions and what are their limitations. At the end a novel method is introduced which can be used to eliminate the found vulnerabilities in the framework. In modern era, information security has become a fundamental necessity for each and every individual. But not everyone can afford the specialized distributions provided by different vendors to their Hadoop cluster. This paper presents a cost-effective technique which anyone can use with their Hadoop cluster to give it a threedimensional security.
