Installing Key Trustee KMS

Key Trustee KMS is a custom Key Management Server (KMS) that uses Cloudera Navigator Key Trustee Server as the underlying keystore, instead of the file-based Java KeyStore (JKS) used by the default Hadoop KMS.

Setting Up an Internal Repository

You must create an internal repository to install Key Trustee KMS. For instructions on creating internal repositories (including Cloudera Manager, CDH, and Cloudera Navigator encryption components), see Creating and Using a Remote Parcel Repository for Cloudera Manager if you are using parcels, or Creating and Using a Package Repository for Cloudera Manager if you are using packages.

Installing Key Trustee KMS Using Parcels

  1. Go to Hosts > Parcels.
  2. Click Edit Settings and add your internal repository to the Remote Parcel Repository URLs section. See Configuring the Cloudera Manager Server to Use the Parcel URL for more information.
  3. Return to the Parcels page (Hosts > Parcels).
  4. Download, distribute, and activate the Key Trustee KMS parcel. See Managing Parcels for detailed instructions on using parcels to install or upgrade components.

Installing Key Trustee KMS Using Packages

  1. After Setting Up an Internal Repository, configure the Key Trustee KMS host to use the repository. See Modifying Clients to Find the Repository for more information.
  2. Because the keytrustee-keyprovider package depends on the hadoop-kms package, you must add the CDH repository. See To add the CDH repository for instructions. If you want to create an internal CDH repository, see Creating a Local Yum Repository.
  3. Install the keytrustee-keyprovider package using the appropriate command for your operating system:
    • RHEL-compatible
      $ sudo yum install keytrustee-keyprovider
    • SLES
      $ sudo zypper install keytrustee-keyprovider
    • Ubuntu or Debian
      $ sudo apt-get install keytrustee-keyprovider
