Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-9590) Support for both encrypted and unencrypted native transport connections
Date Fri, 12 Jun 2015 14:10:01 GMT


Mike Adamson commented on CASSANDRA-9590:

Have you considered doing this with TLS instead SSL? That would allow encrypted and unencrypted
connections over the same port.

> Enabling encryption for native transport currently turns SSL exclusively on or off for
the opened socket. Migrating from plain to encrypted requires to migrate all native clients
as well and redeploy all of them at the same time after starting the SSL enabled Cassandra
> This patch would allow to start Cassandra with both an unencrypted and ssl enabled native
port. Clients can connect to either, based whether they support ssl or not.
> This has been implemented by introducing a new {{native_transport_port_ssl}} config option.

> There would be three scenarios:
> * client encryption disabled: native_transport_port unencrypted, port_ssl not used
> * client encryption enabled, port_ssl not set: encrypted native_transport_port
> * client encryption enabled and port_ssl set: native_transport_port unencrypted, port_ssl
> This approach would keep configuration behavior fully backwards compatible.
> Patch proposal (tests will be added later in case people will speak out in favor for
the patch):
> [Diff trunk|],

> [Patch against trunk|]
