Apache Hadoop 0.20.2 did not have security features in it. You'd need
0.20.203 at least, if not one of the current CDH3/0.20.205 (Both of
which also carry 0.20-append along with 0.20-security).

I read that Apache Hadoop 0.20.205 supports Security. Any thoughts on that.

use it some more before using CDH.
