      Description

      Similar to HADOOP-10768, when HBase RPC encryption is enabled by setting hbase.rpc.protection to privacy, it does not use AES-NI acceleration by default.

      We have implemented a workaround for HBase to use accelerated encryption that can be shown to improve performance, see https://rayokota.wordpress.com/2016/09/13/adventures-in-hardening-hbase/. I will attach a patch of the changes for our workaround, which borrows heavily from the patch for HADOOP-10768, but I'll leave it to the HBase security experts as to what is the best approach.

          I've attached a patch. Most of the code is from HADOOP-10768. The patch does not account for AsyncHBaseSaslRpcClientHandler
