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

[~arpitagarwal] I have added the sample use case as part of the description. The title looks
accurate. Thanks.

> It is possible to enable encryption of DataTransferProtocol. 
> In some use cases, it is required to encrypt data transfer with some clients , but communicate
in plain text with some other clients and data nodes.
> A sample use case will be that any data transfer inside a firewall can be in plain text
whereas any data transfer from clients  outside the firewall needs to be encrypted.
