Ceph RBD image encryption

Aug 3, 2023
Hi There!,

Has anyone used or had the experience of activating Ceph's RBD image encryption? RBD Image encryption

What I want is to have encrypted disks of some VMs. OSD encryption doesn't solve this case, as it doesn't protect against an attacker gaining access to the host.

I also had a look at ZFS encryption, but it doesn't work because we want to have Proxmox clusters and allow live migration/synchronization of VMs and, according to the bug: ZFS storage_migrate does not work if zfs feature@encryption=enabled already reported, these features don't work with encryption.
