Description Kurt Seifried 2013-08-01 01:30:57 EDT
Joe Julian (joe@julianfamily.org) reports:

Any host, whether a peer member or not, can use the remote-host command to 
gain access to the trusted peer group.

The remote host can peer probe itself, modify the volume, set up geo-rep to a 
3rd party, etc.

Network security is not enough. Take, for instance, a storage-as-a-service 
model where you allow untrusted users to mount volumes. Since they need access 
to 24007 to retrieve their volume configuration, they can also issue 
remote-host commands.
Comment 3 Kurt Seifried 2015-02-08 18:03:13 EST
This is by design, the network and hosts used by Gluster must be trusted.
