      Description

      In SecureWALCellCodec#EncryptedKvEncoder#write we get the IV for the entry from the secure RNG. This can be a heavyweight operation if not using an accelerated RNG. Consider something lighter weight. One option could be to create a random IV only once, store it in the header, and then increment it per cell.
