Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-980) support pluggable codecs for RFile
Date Sat, 26 Jan 2013 17:35:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-980?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13563562#comment-13563562
] 

Adam Fuchs commented on ACCUMULO-980:
-------------------------------------

Along with internal use of RFile, RFile is also used for bulk import. We should support asymmetric
keys that allow external processes to encrypt RFiles so that only Accumulo processes can read
them.

> As part of the encryption at rest story, RFile should support pluggable modules where
it currently has hardcoded options for compression codecs. This is a natural place to add
encryption capabilities, as the cost of encryption would likely not be significantly different
from the cost of compression, and the block-level integration should maintain the same seek
and scan performance. Given the many implementation options for both encryption and compression,
it makes sense to have a plugin structure here.
