access.properties and passwd.properties

 

access.properties and passwd.properties are only used by the example
implementations, SimpleAuthenticator and SimpleAuthority.  Your own
implementation (which requires a custom class) certainly does not have
to use these, it can use any other source to make the authn/authz
decision.

The datastax documentation concisely describes how to configure and
assure that the properties are used in client access.  Question is this:
if using the thrift api login, does C* use the Authentication class to
determine access privileges based on the access/passwd properties?

 

These questions are related to 1.1.3.

 

Thanks
