Subject Re: Kafka encryption
Date Tue, 31 May 2016 10:20:47 GMT
I’ve asked the same question in the past, and disk encryption was suggested as a solution
as well.
However, as far as I know, disk encryption will not prevent your data to be stolen when the
machine is compromised.
What we are looking for is even an additional barrier, so that even system administrators
do not have access to the data.
Any suggestions ?
