The charter for the Apache Knox Gateway project is to simplify and normalize the deployment and implementation of secure Hadoop clusters as well as be a central access point for the service specific REST APIs exposed from within the Hadoop clusters.


The Apache Knox Gateway is an effort undergoing incubation at the Apache Software Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Apache Incubator PMC.

Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects.

While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.
