Cassandra authorization is at the keyspace and table level. Click on the
GRANT link on the doc page, to get more info:

Which says "*Permissions to access all keyspaces, a named keyspace, or a
table can be granted to a user.*"

There is no finer-grain authorization at the row, column, or cell level.

You might want to open a Jira for this valuable feature.
