Bundle Security

Hortonworks takes security seriously. Multiple levels of provisions ensure that sensitive data is protected:

  • Anonymization and exclusions:

    • IP addresses and host names are always anonymized.

    • Passwords are not collected.

  • Encryption:

    • SmartSense analysis bundles are encrypted using AES-256 and RSA-1024 encryption.

  • Further customizations:

    • You can configure custom anonymization rules to include environment-specific patterns.

    • By default, all IP addresses, the domain component of fully qualified domain names, and S3 and WASB access keys are anonymized.

    • You can add custom configuration to exclude files and from collection.

Bundles sent to the Hortonworks SmartSense analysis environment are stored in their original anonymized and encrypted form for 90 days before being removed. Specific metadata, such as Apache Ambari and HDP stack version, node count, and amount of storage available and used, are stored for trending rules analysis. Recommendations generated for each bundle are available through the Hortonworks Support Portal and are stored for feedback purposes and used to improve future recommendations.
