I'll continue to object to this. If you're considering running  
Cassandra (or MySQL or Reddis or Memcache or MemcacheDB or ...) on an  
open network Ur Doin' It Wrong. This is what VPN's were created for.  
Nobody in their right mind runs stuff like this, in production,  
exposed to the outside world.

Cassandra was built for performance and adding this authentication  
stuff will do nothing but be an unneeded performance hit for a use  
case that the project shouldn't be fulfilling.
