As the cloud computing technology is prospering day-by-day, the Hadoop framework of cloud computing has been widely adopted on a large scale for storage as well as processing of massive data of users arriving from various sources. Therefore, the security aspect of Hadoop platform is the major issue of concern in today's scenario in order to protect user's data from any unauthorized access. The Hadoop framework in its current form uses the OS authentication system to access its services. The authors propose here a methodology to enhance the authentication and authorization system of Hadoop for its users and authorization between services.
