Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-6606) Optimize HDFS Encrypted Transport performance
Date Wed, 24 Sep 2014 05:51:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6606?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14145944#comment-14145944
] 

Yi Liu commented on HDFS-6606:
------------------------------

Thanks [~atm] for review and [~yoderme] for comment.
Agree with Mike that AES(Advanced Encryption Standard) is superior to 3des and rc4 in all
cases, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Encryption_Standard .

Will update the description of {{dfs.encrypt.data.transfer.algorithm}} and make {{performSaslStep1}}
inline its functionality later.

> In HDFS-3637, [~atm] added support for encrypting the DataTransferProtocol, it was a
great work.
> It utilizes SASL {{Digest-MD5}} mechanism (use Qop: auth-conf),  it supports three security
strength:
> * high                      3des   or rc4 (128bits)
> * medium             des or rc4(56bits)
> * low                       rc4(40bits)
> 3des and rc4 are slow, only *tens of MB/s*,

> 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.
