Encrypted Repository Data

Question asked by ghernando on Oct 26, 2010
How can I go about encrypting cm:content data for files stored on the server?

I'd like to do it in a way that would not affect Lucene search results or the Thumbnail generation for the document.
I've looked at the IDEALX plugin on the Alfresco forge and got it working, but encrypted content using that method isn't full-text searchable.

I thought perhaps adding decryption/encryption with the onContentRead and onContentUpdate behaviors of the ContentServicePolicies, but that may lead to an endless loop.

Would the approach of trying to modify the contentReader / ContentWriter work?  It seems like there are multiple ways to access to content, via CIFS, for example, that would all need to be accounted for.
