Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-958) Support pluggable encryption in walogs

Michael Allen commented on ACCUMULO-958:
----------------------------------------

Hi all, I'll take on getting this code up to snuff and responding to everyone's thoughtful
comments.  The areas I'll be concentrating on besides basic cleanups will be in the tidiness
around the parameters and in getting some basic tests completed.  Thanks again for the thoughts,
we'll get this in better shape before release.

> There are some cases where users want encryption at rest for the walogs. It should be
fairly trivial to implement it in such a way to insert a CipherOutputStream into the data
path (defaulting to using a NullCipher) and then making the Cipher pluggable to users can
insert the appropriate mechanisms for their use case.
> This also means swapping in CipherInputStream and putting in a check to make sure the
Cipher type's match at read and write time. Possibly a versioning mechanism so people can
migrate Ciphers.
