> In HDFS-3637, [~atm] added support for encrypting the DataTransferProtocol, it was a
great work.
> It utilizes SASL {{Digest-MD5}} mechanism,  it supports three security strength:
> * high                      3des   or rc4 (126bits)
> * medium             des or rc4(56bits)
> * low                       rc4(40bits)
> 3des and rc4 are slow, only *tens of MB/s*, 
> http://www.javamex.com/tutorials/cryptography/ciphers.shtml
> http://www.cs.wustl.edu/~jain/cse567-06/ftp/encryption_perf/
> I will give more detailed performance data in future. Absolutely it’s bottleneck and
will vastly affect the end to end performance. 
> AES(Advanced Encryption Standard) is recommended as a replacement of DES, it’s more
secure; with AES-NI support, the throughput can reach nearly *2GB/s*, it won’t be the bottleneck
any more, AES and CryptoCodec work is supported in HADOOP-10150, HADOOP-10603 and HADOOP-10693
(We may need to add a new mode support for AES). 
> This JIRA will use AES with AES-NI support as encryption algorithm for DataTransferProtocol.
