Installing Ranger Plug-ins

The following sections describe how to install Ranger plug-ins.

[Note]Note

To ensure that you are installing the HDP version of the plug-ins instead of the Apache version, make sure you enter the following commands when installing each plug-in:

  • For CentOS and RHEL:

    yum install ranger_ <version_number>
  • For SLES:

    zypper -n --no-gpg-checks install --auto-agree-with-licenses ranger_ <version_number>
  • For Debian/Ubuntu:

    apt-get install <version_number>
  • Set up the JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to Java distribution on the installation machine.

    export JAVA_HOME=location-of-java-home-on-the-machine
  • Edit the install.properties file in the ranger-tagsync-install-directory to support the operational environment.

  • Keeping in mind the following two guidelines, edit the install.properties file in the ranger-tagsync-install-directory to add Audit to solr properties:

    • You must configure the XAAUDIT.SOLR.URL property based on your Solr installation. See http://<solr_host>:8886/solr/ranger_audits for details.

    • You must configure the XAAUDIT.SOLR.ZOOKEEPER property to NONE, if you are using stand alone Solr. or <zk1>:2181,<zk2>:2181/ranger_audits, using the correct zookeeper URL, if you are using SolrCloud.

    XAAUDIT.SOLR.ENABLE=true
    XAAUDIT.SOLR.URL=http://<solr_host>:8886/solr/ranger_audits
    XAAUDIT.SOLR.USER=NONE
    XAAUDIT.SOLR.PASSWORD=NONE
    XAAUDIT.SOLR.ZOOKEEPER=NONE
    XAAUDIT.SOLR.FILE_SPOOL_DIR=/var/log/hadoop/hdfs/audit/solr/spool

Installing the Ranger HDFS Plug-in

The Ranger HDFS plug-in helps to centralize HDFS authorization policies.

This section describes how to create an HDFS resource-based service and install the HDFS plug-in.

Install the HDFS Plug-in

  1. Create an HDFS resource-based service in the Ranger Policy Manager. To do this, complete the HDFS Create Service screen, as described in the Configure an HDFS Service section of the Hadoop Security Guide.

    Make a note of the name you gave to this resource-based service; you will need to use it again during HDFS plug-in setup.

  2. At all servers where NameNode is installed, install the HDFS plug-in by following the steps listed below:

    1. Go to the home directory of the HDFS plug-in:

      cd /usr/hdp/<version>/ranger-hdfs-plugin
    2. Edit the following HDFS-related properties in the install.properties file:

Installing the Ranger Hive Plug-in

The Ranger Hive plug-in integrates with Hive to enforce authorization policies.

[Note]Note

The Ranger plugin for HIve only needs to be set up for HiveServer2. For Hive clients, it is recommended that you protect data using HDFS policies in Ranger. Do not install or set up Ranger plugins on individual Hive client machines.

This section describes how to install the Ranger Hive plug-in:

  1. Create a Hive resource-based service .

  2. Install the Hive plug-in and configure related Hive properties.

  3. Enable the Hive plug-in.

  4. Restart Hive.

Install the Hive Plug-in

  1. Create a Hive resource-based service. To create the Hive resource-based service, complete the Hive Create Service screen as described in the Configure a Hive Service section of the Hadoop Security Guide.

    Make a note of the name you gave to this resource-based service; you will need to use it again during Hive plug-in setup.

  2. At the server where HiveServer2 is installed, install the Hive plug-in:

    • Go to the home directory of the Hive plug-in:

      cd /usr/hdp/<version>/ranger-hive-plugin
    • Edit the following Hive-related properties in the install.properties file:

  5. To enable the Knox plug-in, enter the following commands:

    cd /usr/hdp/<version>/ranger-knox-plugin
    ./enable-knox-plugin.sh
  6. Restart the Knox Gateway:

    su knox -c "/usr/hdp/current/knox-server/bin/gateway.sh stop"
    su knox -c "/usr/hdp/current/knox-server/bin/gateway.sh start"
  7. Optionally, add a new user by following these steps. This is required only if you want users to verify the communication between the Ranger Knox plug-in and Ranger admin.

    1. Add the following information in the usertest block in the /usr/hdp/current/knox-server/templates/users.ldif file, assuming that Knox is using the demo LDAP. If Knox is configured with a different LDAP, you need to add the information in the users.ldif file at that location.

      • # entry for sample user usertest

      • dn: uid=usertest,ou=people,dc=hadoop,dc=apache,dc=org

      • objectclass:top

      • objectclass:person

      • objectclass:organizationalPerson

      • objectclass:inetOrgPerson

      • cn: usertest

      • sn: usertest

      • uid: usertest

      • userPassword:usertest-password

    2. Restart ldap. Enter the following command:

      ./usr/hdp/current/knox-server/bin/ldap.sh stop / start
    3. Verify in which topology the Knox plugin is enabled and then run the command accordingly. Typically, the topology is admin.

    4. Issue the curl command to check policy enforcement for Knox. Typically, the topology in the command is admin.

      curl -iku admin:admin-password -X GET 'https://<knox_host>:8443/gateway/<topology>/webhdfs/v1?op=LISTSTATUS'
    5. Create a certificate for the test connection to be successful. Follow these steps to import a Knox SSL certificate in truststore used by Ranger admin:

      1. Login to the machine running Knox.

      2. Export the Knox certificate:

        cd $GATEWAY_HOME/data/security/keystores
        keytool -exportcert -alias gateway-identity -keystore gateway.jks -file
        knox.crt

        Typically $GATEWAY_HOME/data/security/keystores is /usr/hdp/current/knox-server/data/security/keystores on a Linux machine.

      3. Copy knox.crt onto the machine running Ranger admin to a working directory, for example, /etc/ranger/admin.

      4. Replicate cacerts bundled with the JDK:

        cd /etc/ranger/admin
        cp <JDK_HOME>/jre/lib/security/cacerts cacertswithknox
      5. Import the Knox certificate into the replicated new keystore.

        keytool -import -trustcacerts -file <knox.crt
         created above>  -alias knox  -keystore cacertswithknox
        password: changeit
      6. Edit /usr/hdp/current/ranger-admin/ews/ranger-admin-services.sh and add the parameter -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=<path to the cacertswithknox> to the JAVA_OPTS parameter in the script.

      7. Restart Ranger Admin.

  8. To confirm that the Knox plug-in installation and configuration are complete, go to the Audit Tab of the Ranger Admin Console and check Plugins. You should see Knox listed there.
