DataStax Enterprise 3.2

Like object permission management that uses internal authorization, internal authentication is based on Cassandra-controlled login accounts and passwords. Internal authentication is supported on the following clients when you provide a user name and password to start up the client:

Internal authentication stores user names and bcrypt-hashed passwords in the system_auth.credentials table.

Limitations

Internal authentication is not supported in Solr, the dsetool, and Hadoop utilities.
