Hi,
 
we are using Cassandra v1.0.8 with Hector v1.0-5 and would like to move our current system to an operational setting based on Amazon AWS. What are best practices for addessing security for Cassandra on AWS. Besides Security Groups in AWS how is Cassandra Client to Cluster authentication handled best? There used to be a SimpleAuthenticator that has been moved to Examples.
 
Any recommendations/experiences that you could share? Any hints and guidance is higly appreciated.
 
Cheers and thanks a lot for any kind help!
Christof
