Subject Re: why hbase doesn't provide Encryption

What problem are you trying to solve? Do you want encryption between server
and client, between servers or encryption of data within Hbase? You need to
be more specific.

If one of the first two is what you want: This kind of stuff can easily be
achieved with stunnel or OpenVPN and can probably be considered a very
esoteric requirement, as there are probably not many Hbase users out there,
who have a cluster running across machines that are exposed to open
networks.
If you are looking for the latter, imo the correct way to do it would be
encrypting data _before_ pushing it into the database. Java actually
provides an excellent crypto framework for doing such things.
