Data at Rest Encryption Requirements

Encryption comprises several components, each with its own requirements.

Data at rest encryption protection can be applied at a number of levels within Hadoop:

  • OS filesystem-level
  • Network-level
  • HDFS-level (protects both data at rest and in transit)

For detailed data at rest encryption requirements, see the Data at Rest Encryption Requirements in the Product Compatibility Matrix.
