Flume Security Configuration
To enable Flume to work with Kerberos security on your Hadoop cluster, make sure you perform the installation and configuration steps in Configuring Hadoop Security in CDH4.
These instructions have been tested with CDH4 and MIT Kerberos 5 only. The following instructions describe an example of how to configure a Flume agent to be a client as the user flume to a secure HDFS service. This section does not describe how to secure the communications between Flume agents, which is not currently implemented.
