Abstract: Apache Hadoop emerged as the widely used distributed parallel computing framework for Big Data Processing. Apache Hadoop is an open source framework suitable for processing large scale data sets using clusters of computers. Data is stored in Hadoop using Hadoop Distributed File System. Though Hadoop is widely used for distributed parallel processing of Big Data, some security vulnerabilities does exist. As part of our research we have investigated Hadoop Framework for possible security vulnerabilities and also demonstrated the mechanism to address the identified security vulnerabilities. Our findings include the vulnerabilities in logging mechanism, file system vulnerabilities, and addition of external jar files to the framework. we have addressed these vulnerabilities using custom Map Reduce jobs.
Keyword: Custom Map Reduce, Hadoop Distributed File System, Hadoop Framework, Security Vulnerabilities.
