+ * KeyMaterial class represents the "key material", keeping the information 
that allows readers to recover an encryption key (see

implements the "envelope encryption" pattern, in a

the key material is generated by encrypting the

the key material is generated by encrypting the DEK

current version, only one value is allowed - "PKMT1" (stands 
+ *     for "parquet key management tools, version 1"). For external key 
material storage, this field is written in both "key metadata" and

written only once in the common json.

>             Project: Parquet
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: parquet-mr

> Parquet Modular Encryption 
> ([PARQUET-1178|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PARQUET-1178]) provides 
> an API that accepts keys, arbitrary key metadata and key retrieval callbacks 
> - which allows to implement basically any key management policy on top of it. 
> This Jira will add tools that implement a set of best practice elements for 
> key management. This is not an end-to-end key management, but rather a set of 
> components that might simplify design and development of an end-to-end 
> solution.
> This tool set is one of many possible. There is no goal to create a single or 
> “standard” toolkit for Parquet encryption keys. Parquet has a Crypto Factory 
> interface [(PARQUET-1817|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PARQUET-1817]) 
> that allows to plug in different implementations of encryption key management.
