DataStax Enterprise provides the following built-in security features: (1) internally-managed authentication (login IDs and passwords are managed within Apache Cassandra™); (2) external authentication option that supports Kerberos, LDAP, and Active Directory; (3) internal authorization / object permission management via GRANT/REVOKE; (4) client-to-node and node-to-node encryption via SSL; (5) transparent data encryption at the table / column family level with both on and off-server key management; (6) encryption of external database files like the Apache Cassandra™ commitlog and DSE Search indexes; and (7) data auditing. None of these security features is enabled by default.
