Re: CryptDB - FYI - it might be inspirational for Accumulo encryption architecture

Thanks for posting this, I'll give it a look more thoroughly in the
morning. From your description it sounds like one could write a scan
time iterator to have the tablet servers decrypt the data for you. Is
there anything in the decrypt process that lets you know if it was
successful or not?
