A new encryption capability in librbd was introduced in the Ceph Pacific release. This feature allows users to secure their RBD images by setting per-image passphrases, which will be used to unlock a new data-at-rest encryption layer. Greater flexibility, ease-of-use and minimal performance overhead are the main advantages of this feature over alternatives of using external encryption components, such as dm-crypt and qemu LUKS. Furthermore, this feature will soon allow a unique capability that is not be available by other means: setting RBD cloned images with an encryption key different from the encryption key of its parent image. The talk will describe the new feature, outline various use-cases, present performance evaluation results, and show a quick demo.
