Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-13506) AES-GCM cipher support where available
Date Mon, 20 Apr 2015 16:42:59 GMT
Andrew Purtell created HBASE-13506:

             Summary: AES-GCM cipher support where available
                 Key: HBASE-13506
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-13506
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Sub-task
            Reporter: Andrew Purtell
            Assignee: Andrew Purtell
             Fix For: 2.0.0, 1.1.0, 0.98.13, 1.0.2

The initial encryption drop only had AES-CTR support because authenticated modes such as GCM
are only available in Java 7 and up, and our trunk at the time was targeted at Java 6. However
we can AES-GCM cipher support where available. For HBase 1.0 and up, Java 7 is now the minimum
so use of AES-GCM can go in directly. It's probably possible to add support in 0.98 too using
reflection for cipher object initialization.
