      Description

      Because of privacy and security regulations, for many industries, sensitive data at rest must be in encrypted form. For example: the health­care industry (HIPAA regulations), the card payment industry (PCI DSS regulations) or the US government (FISMA regulations).

      This JIRA aims to provide a mechanism to encrypt HDFS data at rest that can be used transparently by any application accessing HDFS via Hadoop Filesystem Java API, Hadoop libhdfs C library, or WebHDFS REST API.

      The resulting implementation should be able to be used in compliance with different regulation requirements.
