Thanks, I’ll see if I can find some available cycles

Thanks Todd.  From a roadmap perspective, do think this will be the recommended way of enabling
encryption for Kudu or should a design be put together for something more integrated with
Kudu itself?

I think for the short term it's the best recommendation.

I do think there would be some value in a "built-in" encryption feature, for example in order
to support things like different encryption keys per column or per table, etc. It's just a
matter of prioritization and the number of people working on Kudu. If you think the dm-crypt
solution isn't sufficient for your needs, would be great to have some contributions in this

Hi Jordan,

I'm not aware of someone doing this yet, but since dm-crypt operates at the device level and
not the filesystem level, I don't see any reasons it wouldn't work.

It's possible some developers here have already been running like this if they use dm-crypt
on their laptops. Maybe someone else will pipe up if they have tried it.

A while back we had a thread going about using dm-crypt as a means to encrypt kudu data. 
Out of curiosity, has any one actually done this?
