    Description

      Currently the Cassandra drivers offer a plugin authenticator architecture for the support of different authentication methods. This has been leveraged to provide support for LDAP, Kerberos, and Sigv4 authentication. Unfortunately, cqlsh, the included CLI tool, does not offer such support. Switching to a new enhanced authentication scheme thus means being cut off from using cqlsh in normal operation.

      We should have a means of using the same plugins and authentication providers as the Python Cassandra driver.

      Here's a link to an initial draft of CEP.
