Security in the
Big Data platform:
Our big data platform allows the configuration, implementation and management of a stack of applications in a flexible and scalable infrastructure environment.
The platform has been designed taking into account the highest standards in the industry in terms of computer security, providing complete security coverage. This solution allows the customer allocating the resources normally dedicated to security to other really productive actions.
In this way, the customer will be able to reduce threat detection times and response by using the native security features provided by the platform itself, which includes both data protection, and the realization and recovery of backup copies.
CENTRALIZED MANAGEMENT OF PASSWORDS OR CREDENTIALS:
It is essential to protect passwords and credentials to preserve the security of systems and applications. The loss of passwords and credentials is a major problem for any organization that seriously compromises the security of its systems. That is why special attention has been paid to this aspect, providing the platform with a centralized solution where passwords and credentials can be stored. Through this centralized management of security policies the customer can define control policies to access platform services (such as hdfs apache, apache zookeeper, apache kafka, elasticsearch, postgresql, etc.) and applications.
AUTHENTICATION AND AUTHORIZATION MECHANISMS PROVIDED IN THE PLATFORM:
The platform provides standard authentication and authorization services to the applications and services deployed in the system. The reason is that developing customised authentication code can be complex. Most developers are not security experts and are unlikely to know the details and the latest developments in terms of authentication and authorization. The platform uses standard authentication protocols, such as oauth2 and kerberos, which are widely used and are reference within the security industry.
go-aigua includes all the necessary measures and tools to protect both your data and your analytical processes from attacks, thefts or other malicious activities that could seriously damage your systems.
SECURE COMMUNICATIONS WITHIN THE PLATFORM:
The ssl (secure sockets layer) protocol provides transport layer security, including authenticity, data signing and data encryption to ensure secure communication between the different processes, applications and services of the platform.
SECURITY IN WEB SERVICES:
The platform allows the protection of published APIs through rest web services using oauth 2.0. For this, the platform has an API manager that is a complete solution that only allows to design and publish APIs in a secure way, but also to create and manage a community of developers and it is able to balance in a scalable way the traffic of the APIs.
