Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-9633) Add ability to encrypt sstables
Date Tue, 09 Feb 2016 23:36:18 GMT


Jason Brown commented on CASSANDRA-9633:

bq. I think adding an table parameter would make the most sense

I had thought about that, as well, so now with a second 'vote', I'll dig into implementing
it with a table parameter.

bq. doesn't seem to address the encryption of index and summary files

I was hoping to make those separate tickets, tbh - and working on those things, I felt, depended
on having a reasonable plan forward on the sstables (this ticket). Are you good with separate
tickets for that work, or does it make sense to lump it here?

bq. adding a {{compressesIndexFiles}} to ICompressor

Not sure I understand the suggestion here. Can you clarify a bit?

> I have a version of this functionality built on cassandra 2.0 that piggy-backs on the
existing sstable compression functionality and ICompressor interface (similar in nature to
what DataStax Enterprise does). However, if we're adding the feature to the main OSS product,
I'm not sure if we want to use the pluggable compression framework or if it's worth investigating
a different path. I think there's a lot of upside in reusing the sstable compression scheme,
but perhaps add a new component in cqlsh for table encryption and a corresponding field in
> Encryption configuration in the yaml can use the same mechanism as CASSANDRA-6018 (which
is currently pending internal review).
