Subject [jira] [Updated] (HDFS-6386) HDFS Encryption Zones
Date Tue, 10 Jun 2014 23:25:02 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6386?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Charles Lamb updated HDFS-6386:

    Status: Patch Available  (was: Reopened)

The .4 patch implements encryption zones on the server side. Included in this is (1) setting
the xattr for an EZ, validating that an EZ being created or deleted is empty, existing, and
the root of an EZ, (2) setting the appropriate xattr for any files created within an EZ, (3)
on the client side, determining if a file refers to an encrypted file and if so, setting up
the right Crypto{Input,Output}Streams for encrypting/decrypting the data, (4) removing the
earlier (temporary) KEY and IV constants, (5) adds several unit tests for the above.

This patch allows us to demonstrate end-to-end encryption.
