Cloudera Manager

Cloudera Manager is the central tool for managing a CDP Private Cloud Base deployment. You use the Cloudera Manager Admin Console web application to manage, configure, secure, and monitor clusters and Cloudera Runtime services. You can also manage your deployment using the Cloudera Manager API.

Security in Cloudera Manager is composed of authentication, encryption, and authorization. Authentication, a process that requires users and services to prove their identity when trying to access a system resource, is provided by integration with MIT Kerberos and LDAP/AD. Encryption, for data in transit or data in motion, is provided by TLS, HDFS transparent encryption, Cloudera Navigator Encrypt, and Navigator Key Trustee Server. Authorization, concern for who or what has access or control over a given resource or service, is provided by access control via Apache Ranger, Apache HDFS ACLs, traditional POSIX-style permissions for directories and files, and Apache HBase ACLs.
