      Description

      Kafka have mechanism for wire encryption of data.
      But the kafka data at rest which exist in <log.dir>/<topic-name>-<partition> is still unencrypted.
      This directories now have log files with actual messages embedded metadata, but unauthorised user can still recover messages from this files
      Addiding encryption for this data would be valuable for preventing message protection from disk theft, unauthorised user access on servers.
