Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-10091) Align JMX authentication with internal authentication
Date Mon, 17 Aug 2015 12:57:45 GMT
Jan Karlsson created CASSANDRA-10091:

             Summary: Align JMX authentication with internal authentication
                 Key: CASSANDRA-10091
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Core
            Reporter: Jan Karlsson
            Assignee: Jan Karlsson
            Priority: Minor

It would be useful to authenticate with JMX through Cassandra's internal authentication. This
would reduce the overhead of keeping passwords in files on the machine and would consolidate
passwords to one location. It would also allow the possibility to handle JMX permissions in

It could be done by creating our own JMX server and setting custom classes for the authenticator
and authorizer. We could then add some parameters where the user could specify what authenticator
and authorizer to use in case they want to make their own.

This could also be done by creating a premain method which creates a jmx server. This would
give us the feature without changing the Cassandra code itself. However I believe this would
be a good feature to have in Cassandra.

I am currently working on a solution which creates a JMX server and uses a custom authenticator
and authorizer. It is currently build as a premain, however it would be great if we could
put this in Cassandra instead.
