You can enable internal encryption using the Object Storage Management application or a management API method.

  • If you intend to use encryption, it's best to enable it before defining storage components so that all objects written to storage components are encrypted.
  • If you have already defined storage components and intend to enable encryption, do not try to enable encryption from multiple accounts, or by multiple calls to the API method /s3_encryption/set, simultaneously.
    CAUTION:
    If two accounts try to set the encryption flag simultaneously, either using the Object Storage Management application or the management API method /s3_encryption/set, existing storage components can become inaccessible.
