Product Compatibility Matrix for Cloudera Navigator Encryption

Cloudera Navigator encryption comprises several components. See Cloudera Navigator Data Encryption Overview for more information on the components, concepts, and architecture involved in encrypting data.

Cloudera Navigator Key Trustee Server

Because of a change in the ports used by Key Trustee Server, Navigator Encrypt versions lower than 3.7 and Key Trustee KMS versions lower than 5.4 are not supported in Key Trustee Server 5.4 and higher.

Key Trustee Server: Recommended Hardware and Supported Distributions

Recommended Hardware and Supported Distributions

Key Trustee Server must be installed on a dedicated server or virtual machine (VM) that is not used for any other purpose. The backing PostgreSQL database must be installed on the same host as the Key Trustee Server, and must not be shared with any other services. For high availability, the active and passive Key Trustee Servers must not share physical resources. See Resource Planning for Data at Rest Encryption for more information.

The recommended minimum hardware specifications are as follows:

  • Processor: 1 GHz 64-bit quad core
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Storage: 20 GB on moderate- to high-performance disk drives

Cloudera Navigator Key Trustee KMS

Key Trustee KMS: Recommended Hardware and Supported Distributions

The recommended minimum hardware specifications are as follows:

  • Processor: 2 GHz 64-bit quad core
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Storage: 40 GB on moderate- to high-performance disk drives

The Key Trustee KMS workload is CPU-intensive. Cloudera recommends using machines with capabilities equivalent to your NameNode hosts, with Intel CPUs that support AES-NI for optimum performance. Also, Cloudera strongly recommends that you enable TLS for both the HDFS and the Key Trustee KMS services to prevent the passage of plain text key material between the KMS and HDFS data nodes.

Cloudera Navigator Encrypt

Supported command-line interpreters:

  • sh (Bourne)
  • bash (Bash)
  • dash (Ubuntu)

Network Requirements

For new Navigator Key Trustee Server installations, Navigator Encrypt initiates TCP traffic over port 11371 (HTTPS) to the Key Trustee Server.

For upgrades, Navigator Encrypt initiates TCP traffic over ports 80 (HTTP) and 443 (HTTPS) to the Navigator Key Trustee Server.

Internet Access

You must have an active connection to the Internet to download many package dependencies, unless you have internal repositories or mirrors containing the dependent packages.

Maintenance Window

Data is not accessible during the encryption process. Plan for system downtime during installation and configuration.

Administrative Access

To enforce a high level of security, all Navigator Encrypt commands require administrative (root) access (including installation and configuration). If you do not have administrative privileges on your server, contact your system administrator before proceeding.

Package Dependencies

Navigator Encrypt requires these packages, which are resolved by your distribution package manager during installation:

  • dkms
  • keyutils
  • ecryptfs-utils
  • libkeytrustee
  • navencrypt-kernel-module
  • openssl
  • lsof
  • gcc
  • cryptsetup

These packages may have other dependencies that are also resolved by your package manager. Installation works with gcc, gcc3, and gcc4.
