Hops Enterprise Security

Hops Enterprise security is built on TLS certificates. This is an increasingly popular model with Google Cloud Platform, Netflix, and Lyft adopting this approach, due to its superior scalability and flexibility over Kerberos.

We have redesigned Hadoop’s HDFS and YARN to support TLS certificates, and added support where needed in other services that already support TLS certificates (like Spark and Kafka).
