This session shows how to secure different Big Data sensitive data items such as log files, metastore databases, control files, config files, data directories or data files for different Big Data technologies.
As Hadoop, MongoDB, Cassandra and other massively distributed Big Data stores grow in popularity, so too does the volume of sensitive regulatory data that gets captured for analysis. Cloudera Navigator Encrypt gives peace of mind, knowing the sensitive information used to run massive-scale queries and analytics is secure. Navigator Encrypt works as a last line of defense for protecting data, by providing a transparent layer between the application and file system and securing information as it gets written to disk, ensuring minimal performance lag in the encryption or decryption process. The solution also includes robust key management and process-based access controls, while simultaneously preventing admins or super users like root from accessing data that they don’t need to see allowing users to store their cryptographic keys separate from the encrypted data.
This unique software can secure ANY Linux application or database without making any changes to your environment and has been proven as an effective solution to encrypt sensitive data stored on Cassandra, MongoDB and Hadoop.
Features of Cloudera Navigator Encrypt include:
Advanced Key Management - Stores keys separate from the encrypted data to ensure a data breach does not also result in the loss of the cryptographic key.
Transparent Data Encryption - Protects data at rest resulting in minimal performance impact. Requires no complex changes to databases, files, applications or storage.
Process Based Access Controls - Restricts access to specific processes rather than by OS user.
Encrypt and Decrypt Unstructured Data - Secures personally identifiable information, intellectual property, log files and any other sensitive data that could be considered damaging if exposed outside the business.
Performance - Supports the Intel AES-NI cryptographic accelerator for enhanced performance in the encryption and decryption process
Compliance - Helps enable compliance with HIPAA-HITECH, PCI-DSS, FISMA, EU Data Protection Directive and other data security regulations
Multidistribution support - Supported on Debian, Ubuntu, Centos, Red Hat and SUSE.
Simple Installation - Distributed in RPM and DEB packages, as well as SUSE KMPs.
Multiple mountpoints - Support for multiple encrypted mount points managed with individual keys.
The security of cloud IT data depends on the safety of cryptographic keys, SSL certificates, database tokens and other opaque objects.
Navigator Encrypt helps to protect these critical IT secrets from unauthorized access and meet strict data security regulations.
