What's New in Schema Registry

Learn about the new features for Schema Registry in Cloudera Runtime 7.1.5

New variable to set the hashing algorithm used for generating schema fingerprints

You can now change the hashing algorithm used for generating schema fingerprints. By default, Schema Registry uses MD5. To specify a different hashing algorithm such as SHA-2, go to the Cloudera Manager configuration page and search for the schema.registry.hash.function property. Enter the hashing algorithm and click Save.

Schema Registry FIPS compliant cryptography

Schema Registry can now be configured to use FIPS compliant cryptography, through the use of FIPS 140-2 validated encryption modules, and with deployment on FIPS mode enabled RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and CentOS Operating Systems.
