Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-7653) Add role based access control to Cassandra
Date Thu, 31 Jul 2014 11:08:38 GMT
Mike Adamson created CASSANDRA-7653:

             Summary: Add role based access control to Cassandra
                 Key: CASSANDRA-7653
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Core
            Reporter: Mike Adamson
             Fix For: 3.0

The current authentication model supports granting permissions to individual users. While
this is OK for small or medium organizations wanting to implement authorization, it does not
work well in large organizations because of the overhead of having to maintain the permissions
for each user.

Introducing roles into the authentication model would sets of permissions to be controlled
in one place and then the role granted to users. Roles should also be able to be granted to
other roles to allow hierarchical sets of permissions to be built up.
