AD integration with EMR

Active Directory (AD) is a directory service that Microsoft developed for Windows domain networks. It is included in most Windows Server operating systems as a set of processes and services
In recent times,  many enterprises use Microsoft Active Directory to manage users, groups, and computers in a network.

This article is about the seamless integration of Active Directory on Amazon EMR with the same single sign-on (SSO) experience.

The ability to authenticate users and services with Kerberos not only allows you to secure your big data applications, but it also enables you to easily integrate Amazon EMR clusters with an Active Directory environment.  It is also possible to use AWS CloudFormation to automate the deployment of this solution.
