Securing Connections from DataStax Studio to DataStax Enterprise
A connection from each notebook to a DSE cluster is required. Connect notebooks only to DSE clusters that run the relevant workload. See Creating a connection in DataStax Studio.
Secure connections between DataStax Studio and DataStax Enterprise (DSE) using SSL client-to-node encryption or internal/LDAP authentication. DataStax recommends securing ports in compliance with your security policy.
Client-to-node encryption protects in-flight data from client machines to a database cluster using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and establishes a secure channel between the client and the coordinator node. SSL must be configured and working on your DSE cluster. To use SSL to connect Studio to an SSL-enabled DataStax Enterprise cluster, see Using SSL connections in DataStax Studio.
Internal or LDAP authentication must be configured on the DSE server. To enable internal username-password authentication for the connection from DataStax Studio to DSE, set the authenticated username and password in DataStax Studio when Creating a connection in DataStax Studio.
