---------------------------------------

Ok, great.  I created HADOOP-13635 so my company has a JIRA to refer to.  I 
hope you don't mind.  Thanks.

> Hbase RPC encryption is enabled by setting “hbase.rpc.protection” to 
> "privacy". With the token authentication, it utilized DIGEST-MD5 mechanisms 
> for secure authentication and data protection. For DIGEST-MD5, it uses DES, 
> 3DES or RC4 to do encryption and it is very slow, especially for Scan. This 
> will become the bottleneck of the RPC throughput.
> Apache Commons Crypto is a cryptographic library optimized with AES-NI. It 
> provides Java API for both cipher level and Java stream level. Developers can 
> use it to implement high performance AES encryption/decryption with the 
> minimum code and effort. Compare with the current implementation of 
> org.apache.hadoop.hbase.io.crypto.aes.AES, Crypto supports both JCE Cipher 
> and OpenSSL Cipher which is better performance than JCE Cipher. User can 
> configure the cipher type and the default is JCE Cipher.
