Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-12294) LDAP Authentication
Date Thu, 20 Sep 2018 02:57:00 GMT


Kurt Greaves commented on CASSANDRA-12294:

There's been a lot of interest in getting our LDAP authenticator in tree, so I'm just going
to mention it here and assign this to me. TBH it still needs some work, and ATM it doesn't
support 4.0 (but that's irrelevant), but going to dump it here for reference.

Not going to be doing any work on this for the duration of the feature freeze, and it'll be
targeted for 4.1, but just leaving this here so people/users can express opinions if they
see fit.

Repo for reference:

>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Distributed Metadata
>            Reporter: Daniel Kleviansky

>             Fix For: 4.x
> Addition of an LDAP authentication plugin, in tree, along side the default authenticator,
so that Cassandra can leverage existing LDAP-speaking servers to manage user logins.
> DSE offers this: [Enabling LDAP authentication |],
but does not exist in vanilla C* as far as I can tell.
> Ideally would like to introduce this as part of the 2.2.x branch, as this is what is
currently running in client production environment, and where it is needed at the moment.
> Would aim for support of at least Microsoft Active Directory running on Windows Server
> Work in progress: — Branch 12294-22
