 Introduction

-----------
-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

+The Apache Knox Gateway is a REST API Gateway for interacting with Hadoop
+clusters.
+
+The Knox Gateway provides a single access point for all REST interactions with Hadoop
+clusters. In this capacity, the Knox Gateway is able to provide valuable functionality 
+to the aid in the integration, control, monitoring and automation of critical administrative
+and analytical requirements of an enterprise.
+
+* Authentication (LDAP and Active Directory Authentication Provider)
+* Federation/SSO (HTTP Header Based Identity Federation)
+* Authorization (Service Level Authorization)
+* Auditing
+
+While there are a number of benefits for unsecured Hadoop clusters, the Knox Gateway also
+complements the kerberos secured cluster quite nicely.
+
+Coupled with proper network isolation of a Kerberos secured Hadoop cluster, the Knox Gateway
+provides the enterprise with a solution that:
+
+* Integrates well with enterprise identity management solutions
+* Protects the details of the Hadoop cluster deployment (hosts and ports are hidden from
endusers)
+* Simplifies the number of services that clients need to interact with
+
