Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-9633) Add ability to encrypt sstables
Date Wed, 23 Nov 2016 14:16:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-9633?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15690211#comment-15690211
] 

Jason Brown commented on CASSANDRA-9633:
----------------------------------------

[~spodxx@gmail.com] It's already configurable for different key providers. {{CipherFactory}}
create an instance of a {{KeyProvider}}, as configured via the yaml. The default {{KeyProvider}},
{{JKSKeyProvider}}, reads from a keystore, but it's pluggable and you could easily add in
a Vault provider, as well.

> 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
CFMD.
> Encryption configuration in the yaml can use the same mechanism as CASSANDRA-6018 (which
is currently pending internal review).
