      Description

      Because firewalls and employees are not infallible it would be nice to restrict the ability of any node to join a cluster to a list of named hosts in the configuration so that someone would be unable to start a node and replicate all the data locally. I understand that in order to do this the person must know the seed servers and the cluster name and to extract the data they will need a userid and password but another level of security would be to force them to execute any brute force attack from a locked down server instead of replicating all the data locally.
