Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CASSANDRA-2274) Restrict Cassandra cluster node joins to a list of named hosts
Date Mon, 07 Nov 2011 23:58:51 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-2274?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Jonathan Ellis resolved CASSANDRA-2274.
---------------------------------------

    Resolution: Not A Problem

Looks to me like between iptables and encryption we have this covered.  Getting your ops team
to use those appropriately is frankly an exercise for the reader.  We don't have so many resources
that we should squander them reinventing wheels that are better handled elsewhere.

> 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.
