Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-5545) Add SASL authentication to CQL native protocol
Date Tue, 21 May 2013 16:17:18 GMT


Sylvain Lebresne commented on CASSANDRA-5545:

bq. Why not make SASLAuthenticator extend IAuthenticator

The problem is that SASLAuthenticator is intrinsically stateful, i.e. we need a new for each
new authentication. And IAuthenticator has methods like setup() that somewhat suggest there
is just one IAuthenticator.

auth providers, such as Kerberos & NTLM.
