PAM Authentication for Spark

Spark supports PAM authentication on secure MapR clusters.

In EEP-5.0.0, PAM authentication and encryption is enabled by default for all Spark Web UIs. After running, if the cluster is secure and Spark is installed, Spark will be configured using PAM.

NOTE Spark PAM is available in Spark-2.2.1 from EEP-5.0 and in Spark-2.1.0 from EEP-4.1.1.

See Configuring PAM for information on how PAM works with MapR.
