Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3051) On Disk Compression breaks SSL Encryption
Date Mon, 29 Aug 2011 15:58:40 GMT


Gary Dusbabek commented on CASSANDRA-3051:

Not that I know of.  If someone wants to write one it would flesh out these basic steps:
# follow the steps for generating a keystore and a trust store here:
# plug those files into encryption_options in cassandra.yaml
# make sure encryption_options.internode_encryption = all in the yaml.

I was mostly raising a voice of caution against committing code backed up by statements like
"I don't see anh reason why it won't..."  This is usually a prelude to something like "we
need to quickly release a new version because XYZ broke streaming."  Just sayin'.

> Encryption depends on FileStreamTask.write [1] protected member to be called because
the SSLFileStreamTask.write overrides this to write back to the server.
> When enabled, compression circumvents the call and the client does not communicate using
an SSL socket back to the server.

> protected long write(FileChannel fc, Pair<Long, Long> section, long length, long
bytesTransferred) throws IOException
