i am interested to know the performance hit caused on enabling encryption with shield.
I wanted to fine tune few parameters before taking performance numbers.
Any suggestions on configurations of security protocols for better performance. I have some questions in particular
- How does Shield does encryption at the backend ? JDK SSL or OPEN SSL ?
- Which cipher suites should be used for better performance ?
- Is the performance dependent on java version or JCE or other stuff ?
- are there any benchmarks ES has on enabling encryption
