Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-10091) Align JMX authentication with internal authentication
Date Fri, 26 Feb 2016 17:48:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-10091?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15169402#comment-15169402

Jan Karlsson commented on CASSANDRA-10091:
------------------------------------------

[~beobal] We need to change the StartupChecks because we are still throwing an error in [checkJMXPorts|
https://github.com/apache/cassandra/blob/trunk/src/java/org/apache/cassandra/service/StartupChecks.java#L142]
when we do not set cassandra.jmx.local.port.

Otherwise LGTM.

I am currently writing a Dtest for the authn part of it.

> 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
Cassandra.
> 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.
