Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1021) Provide default key management thats secure
Date Sat, 26 Oct 2013 01:34:30 GMT


John Vines commented on ACCUMULO-1021:

Do we want to make it 'secure' out of the box, or do we want it easy to use out of the box?
And by easy to use, I mean avoiding any questions regarding security that the user may or
may not understand/comprehend the repurcussions of.

And I quote secure, because we can only go so far with an out of the box implementation so
users may have an overextended sense of security because of this ticket.

> There are a few tickets to support encrypting data at rest in Accumulo.   Encryption
in a cluster is useless w/o good key management.   Users should have the ability to plug in
their own key managment.  Out of the box Accumulo should provide a plugin for key management
thats secure.
