--------------------------------------

             Summary: Add option to encrypt commitlog 
                 Key: CASSANDRA-6018
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-6018
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Core
            Reporter: Jason Brown
            Assignee: Jason Brown
             Fix For: 1.2.10, 2.0.1


We are going to start using cassandra for a billing system, and while I can encrypt sstables
at rest (via Datastax Enterprise), commit logs are more or less plain text. Thus, an attacker
would be able to easily read, for example, credit card numbers in the clear if the calling
app does not encrypt the data itself before sending it to cassandra.

I want to allow the option of encrypting the commit logs, most likely controlled by a property
in the yaml.
