Subject [jira] [Updated] (CASSANDRA-2922) Move SimpleAuthenticator and SimpleAuthority to examples/
Date Fri, 07 Oct 2011 14:01:31 GMT


Sylvain Lebresne updated CASSANDRA-2922:

    Attachment: 2922.patch

Attaching a patch that move the two classes and the config files to examples/simple_authentication,
along with a  small README.

One slight concern is that some parts (the cli, ColumnFamilyRecordReader and ColumnFamilyOutputFormat)
are kind of suggesting we provide username/password authentication somehow (because they allow
to configure a username and password either on the command line or in a config file), why
we don't really, at least not out of the box.

> We've provided SimpleAuthenticator and SimpleAuthority, toy file-based authentication
and authorization mechanisms, since CASSANDRA-547.  These are NOT production ready (even non-experts
can tell the encryption is a joke) but newcomers don't always realize this.
> Let's move them to examples/ instead.
