[erlang-questions] security concerns
Fri Apr 4 14:30:59 CEST 2014
I do not know of any programming language that provides automatic secure
communication between nodes (most don't provide anything at all, meaning
you have a lot more to take care of yourself), or access control for
calling built-in functions (often just a matter of pushing a file to the
server one way or another) (some languages allow *disabling* functions
entirely, which is not the same).
The post does not mention any, nor does it give any hint as to what
should be considered for addition to Erlang.
Distributed Erlang comes with very little to support multi-DC,
considering it's fully meshed, deals badly with netsplits (global for
example) and so on and so forth. It would be very surprising to see
secure communication available before the other problems are solved.
