Hello Erik,

It seems possible, refer to the following documentation to see if it fits your needs:
http://www.datastax.com/documentation/cassandra/2.0/cassandra/security/secureInternalAuthenticationTOC.html
http://www.datastax.com/documentation/cassandra/2.0/cassandra/security/secureInternalAuthorizationTOC.html

And you can check the permissions available here:
http://www.datastax.com/documentation/cql/3.1/cql/cql_reference/list_permissions_r.html

I'm assuming you are using CQL.

Regards,

Regards,

Hi!

Is there such a thing as the anonymous/unauthenticated user in the
cassandra permissions system?

What I would like to do is to grant select, i.e. provide read-only
access, to users which have not presented a username and password.

Then grant update/insert to other users which have presented a username
and (correct) password.

Doable?

Regards,
\EF
