What is the security mechanism of Cassandra?

Cassandra is equipped with various security mechanisms, including:

  1. Access Control: Cassandra offers a mechanism for access control, allowing users’ access to the database to be restricted through roles and permissions.
  2. Data encryption: Cassandra supports data transmission encryption and data storage encryption, enabling encryption of data transmission through the TLS/SSL protocol, and encryption of data storage using encryption algorithms.
  3. Firewall and network isolation: Restricting external access to the Cassandra cluster and data can be achieved by configuring firewall and network isolation.
  4. Cassandra also supports security plugins, which can be installed to enhance data security.
  5. Audit logs: Cassandra is able to record all user accesses and database operations, allowing for tracking and auditing actions.

These security measures can assist users in safeguarding their data against unauthorized access and attacks.
