Add option to encrypt commitlog

    Description

      We are going to start using cassandra for a billing system, and while I can encrypt sstables at rest (via Datastax Enterprise), commit logs are more or less plain text. Thus, an attacker would be able to easily read, for example, credit card numbers in the clear text commit log (if the calling app does not encrypt the data itself before sending it to cassandra).

      I want to allow the option of encrypting the commit logs, most likely controlled by a property in the yaml.
