No, ExportSnapshot does not use DistCp it runs its own M/R job to copy data
over to a new destination.

In a map task it uses HDFS API to create/write data to a new destination.
Therefore, the easiest way to secure communication
during this operation is to use secure HDFS transport.

but there is caveat ...

ExportSnapshot does not support external cluster configuration - you can't
provide path to external cluster config dir. This seems like a good feature
