Subject Re: Encyrption of Data at REST in Apache Ignite
Date Tue, 13 Dec 2016 14:41:09 GMT
Well the data is in memory - do you have a concern that another process on the same machine
as the Ignite daemon can read it - there might be better ways then encryption to solve it.
If you are concerned about swapping to disk then try to reduce the risk and/or encrypt the
hard drive.

In the scenario you mentioned - how does the client fetching the data encrypt in memory (if
at all). 

There are some research projects addressing this with additional hardware or complete new
ways of accesses, but they are in some cases slow and also it is not always needed.
1) spark research project with sgx (cf amplabs)
2) mit cryptdb (http://css.csail.mit.edu/cryptdb/)
