Hardening Apache Cassandra for Compliance (or Paranoia).
Every Apache Cassandra installation needs to be secured, either for compliance or security reasons. Out of the box, Cassandra is an open system, free from authentication, authorization and encryption. With little additional effort, however, it can be secured to meet most regulatory and security requirements.

In this talk Nate McCall, Co-Founder at The Last Pickle, will explain how to implement inter-node and client-server SSL Encryption, Client Authentication and Authorisation, Internode Authentication, and JMX security. While few people pose a deep understanding of security, everyone should know how to implement the basics for Apache Cassandra.
