Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-5545) Add SASL authentication to CQL native protocol
Date Tue, 21 May 2013 16:07:16 GMT


Aleksey Yeschenko commented on CASSANDRA-5545:

Can we do this without alterting IAuthenticator? Why not make SASLAuthenticator extend IAuthenticator
(and make Legacy and Password authenticators extend SASLAuthenticator instead of IAuthenticator).
And replace that null check with instanceof?

I don't like this trend of modifying IAuthenticator with every major release. Last time it
was necessary, but this time we can avoid it.

auth providers, such as Kerberos & NTLM.
