Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-9972) Make node tool command take a password file (2.0.x)
Date Tue, 04 Aug 2015 01:52:05 GMT


sankalp kohli commented on CASSANDRA-9972:

I think only one release of 2.0 is left....I am not sure whether it make sense to add this
so late. 
cc [~brandon.williams]  What do you think?

This is a security risk. Any one doing a 'ps' can see the clear password. Can we change the
node tool command to also take a password file argument. This file will list the JMX user
and passwords. Example below:
> cat /cassandra/run/10003004.jmxpasswd
> monitorRole abc
> controlRole def
> Based on the user name provided, node tool can pick up the right password.
