Security Considerations

Planning for security will help you identify security shortcomings and address them before you go into production.

MapR 6.0 and later releases provide built-in security. If your cluster is not already secure, the MapR Converged Data Platform supports many different levels of security. For more information, see Getting Started with MapR Security.

If the cluster you are planning to install must communicate with other clusters, the clusters should have similar security attributes. Mixing secure and nonsecure clusters is not recommended. For more information, see Setting Up Cross-Cluster Security.
