Restrict Cassandra cluster node joins to a list of named hosts
--------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: CASSANDRA-2274
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-2274
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 0.7.2
         Environment: All
            Reporter: Andrew Schiefelbein


Because firewalls and employees are not infallible it would be nice to restrict the ability
of any node to join a cluster to a list of named hosts in the configuration so that someone
would be unable to start a node and replicate all the data locally.  I understand that in
order to do this the person must know the seed servers and the cluster name and to extract
the data they will need a userid and password but another level of security would be to force
them to execute any brute force attack from a locked down server instead of replicating all
the data locally.
