Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1021) Provide default key management thats secure
Date Sun, 27 Oct 2013 05:53:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1021?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13806234#comment-13806234

Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-1021:
---------------------------------------------

I'm not sure it's within scope of Accumulo to do key management at all. I think it's sufficient
to make Accumulo easily configurable with keys and a trust chain, but I'd be concerned about
doing anything "out of the box" beyond configuration. The more we do that kind of stuff, the
more we're stuck maintaining it, and Accumulo becomes at risk of becoming too bloated.

> 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.
