Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7653) Add role based access control to Cassandra
Date Mon, 12 Jan 2015 16:21:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-7653?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14273733#comment-14273733
] 

Sam Tunnicliffe commented on CASSANDRA-7653:
--------------------------------------------

Pushed a further commit which adds a redundant "user" column to the resultset returned from
LIST PERMISSIONS queries. Also, re-introduced ListUsersStatement to preserve the current output
of those queries. To be consistent with CREATE USER being an alias for CREATE ROLE with the
LOGIN option, LIST USERS will filter roles without that option.

Updateds to test_auth in dtests: https://github.com/beobal/cassandra-dtest/tree/7653

> 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.
