Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-10951) Use PBKDF2 to generate test encryption keys in the shell
Date Thu, 10 Apr 2014 14:13:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-10951?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13965388#comment-13965388

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-10951:

No compatability issues that I can see given this isn't the way to generate data keys for
production. This is so one can use the shell to create a schema with all encryption related
attributes set up properly for basic functional testing or integration tests.

> We provide some support in the shell for setting the column family data encryption key,
which enables some simple testing when kicking the tires. (CF data key management should be
done using the Java API.) Despite the very modest goal there might be an objection to using
a hash instead of a key derivation function, so just go ahead and do that.
