Hey Patrick,

Thanks for the quick response. This approach would leave all data unencrypted while Kudu is
being used and thus only protect against physical theft, would it not?  We’re looking for
something more like the HDFS encryption, prevents os-level attacks, unencrypted on the client,
etc. Sorry if I’ve misunderstood your meaning.

Hey Jordan,

It would help to understand your particular requirements. For example, can it be solved using
volume-level encryption? (This could be done today.) Are you looking for per-table or per-column

In the release notes section I see mention that lack of encryption is a current security limitation,
however I do not see a JIRA for tracking this feature.    Have I overlooked something or should
I open a request?
