Cloudera Navigator Key Trustee Server

Cloudera Navigator Key Trustee Server is an enterprise-grade crytographic key storage and management system used by Cloudera Navigator Encrypt that separates encryption keys from the data, thus ensuring data is protected even if unauthorized users gain access to the storage media. It enables your cluster to meet the strictest data security regulations. Furthermore, Navigator Key Trustee Server can be integrated with a hardware security module (HSM) to provide the highest level of security for your keys. See Cloudera Navigator Key HSM for details.

In addition, Navigator Key Trustee Server can be used by other cluster components. For example, HDFS Transparent Encryption can use Navigator Key Trustee Server (KTS) as its backing key store (for Hadoop KMS, instead of the default Java KeyStore) for better security and scalability. See Migrating Keys from a Java KeyStore to Cloudera Navigator Key Trustee Server for more information about using Navigator KTS with HDFS encryption.
