Subject RE: Custom Authentication with Cassandra

Appears to me that the CLI allows login even though there is an authentication exception.

At that point there is actually no user id/pwd, ie, both are empty strings.

If necessary, I can send the code, I am using for the CustomAuthentication.

Are you really authenticated at that point or does the cli just not know how to deal w/ auth
