Hi,

first, thank you for this nice piece of software, it really looks
carefully designed and that means a lot when it comes to data storage.

I'd have two questions regarding security :

 - does node communication is plain erlang node interprocesses
   communication as described in
   http://www.erlang.org/doc/reference_manual/distributed.html#id2280311 ?
   So what is the correct way to allow nodes to join the ring, and how
   to encrypt data transfert ? Do you consider that Riak should stay
   away from that, and for example, rely on a VPN ?

 - do you plan to provide some kind of access control, at the
   bucket-level for example, with credentials or anything else ? Or do
   you consider that Riak should stay away from that, and rely on a http
   reverse proxy doing authentication and access control ?

regards

-- 
  Paul
