Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6660) Make node tool command take a password file
Date Tue, 18 Feb 2014 13:42:22 GMT


Brandon Williams commented on CASSANDRA-6660:

Thanks for the patch.  That's a nice thing to have as a last resort, but I think most people
would rather stores this in a file than type the password every time.

This is a security risk. Any one doing a 'ps' can see the clear password. Can we change the
node tool command to also take a password file argument. This file will list the JMX user
and passwords. Example below:
> cat /cassandra/run/10003004.jmxpasswd
> monitorRole abc
> controlRole def
> Based on the user name provided, node tool can pick up the right password.
