Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7653) Add role based access control to Cassandra
Date Fri, 01 Aug 2014 03:56:38 GMT


Michael Shuler commented on CASSANDRA-7653:

Awesome!  I didn't see any tests in a quick look at the patch, and I don't think there is
much (any?) auth unit tests done, as most of that is done in dtest -

[~enigmacurry] this will be a feature addition to keep an eye on.  If someone wants to add
a patch to dtest auth_test, feel free to post that as a pull request on the dtest github and
link back to this ticket.

> 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 allow sets of permissions to be
controlled in one place as a role 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.
