> Avro file format is widely used in Hadoop. As data security is getting more and more
attention in Hadoop community, we propose to improve Avro file format to be able to handle
data encryption and decryption.
> Similar to compression and decompression, encryption and decryption can be implemented
with Codecs, a concept that already exists in Avro. However, Avro Codec context handling needs
to be extended to support per-codec contexts, such as encryption keys, for encryption and
> Avro supports multiple language implementations. This is an umbrella JIRA for this work
and the implementation work for each language will be addressed in sub tasks.
