Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-980) support pluggable codecs for RFile
Date Fri, 01 Feb 2013 20:44:13 GMT

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

RE encryption in memory, we might want to punt on this for now, and wait for a future hardware
solution that just encrypts everything in RAM. That would be independent of Accumulo, and
there are few of those on the horizon.

> 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.
