The advances in the digital world have rendered the collection of colossal amounts of data called big data. This voluminous data if analyzed in an expedient way can help the authors gain valuable insights. On the other hand, securing big data has become an important aspect as it can lead to disastrous results if intercepted by intruders. Through this paper, they describe the management of authentication and access control by providing an overview of the existing protocols.
