> Commit log segments share iv values between encrypted chunks. The cipher should be reinitialized
with a new iv for each discrete piece of data it encrypts, otherwise it gives attackers something
to compare between chunks of data. Also, some cipher configurations don't support initialization
vectors ('AES/ECB/NoPadding'), so some logic should be added to determine if the cipher should
be initialized with an iv.
