      Description

      It is possible to enable encryption of DataTransferProtocol.
      In some use cases, it is required to encrypt data transfer with some clients , but communicate in plain text with some other clients and data nodes.

      A sample use case will be that any data transfer inside a firewall can be in plain text whereas any data transfer from clients outside the firewall needs to be encrypted.
