Re: [jira] [Commented] (FLUME-1424) File Channel should support encryption
It would be great for you to pick this up.  We need this at Intuit asap and we are planning on having one of our engineers work on it next week if no one here can do it first.  What I had suggested  was to have add a FlumeEventFactory that could be configurable.  We could then use an EncryptedFlumeEventFactory that wraps the OutputStream with a CipherOutputStream and likewise when reading.  Ideally, the key should be able to be stored either in the default keystore something pluggable.
