Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7513) Non-superuser users should not be able to list users
Date Wed, 09 Jul 2014 08:30:05 GMT


Mike Adamson commented on CASSANDRA-7513:

Ok, so I may have jumped in a little early with this. Having spent more time looking at how
other systems handle this, what I'm really after is the ability to enable / disable this functionality
using permissions. That functionality seems to be the most common way of handling this problem.

> ListUserStatement allows any logged in user to list all the users in the system. This
is a security flaw as it allows non-superusers to get a list of superusers.
> There is no reason to allow non-superusers to get a list users because all the authentication
functionality that manipulates users is only available to superusers.
