The proposal for Riak’s security, discussed there in the open:
Thus, I propose we add authentication/authorization/TLS and auditing to Riak, to make Riak more resilient to unauthorized access. In general, I took the design cues from PostgreSQL. Another goal was to make this applicable to riak_core, so any reliance on KV primitives or features are intentionally avoided.
Andrew Thomson, the author of the proposal, mentions PostgreSQL as a source of inspiration. Besides the normal topics, authentication, authorization, and auditing, the document has an Open questions section. If you care about Riak’s future security go and help out.
