  • ONTAP 9
  • NetApp Volume Encryption (NVE)
  • NetApp Aggregate Encryption (NAE)

Answer

  • Starting with ONTAP 9.7, NAE and NVE are enabled by default if the following conditions are met:
    • A Volume Encryption license is in place
    • OKM or external key managers are configured
    • NSE is not used

Note: NAE volumes are created by default on NAE aggregates, and NVE volumes are created by default on non-NAE aggregates.

  • NVE and NAE can be disabled by default with the following command:

cluster1::*> options -option-name encryption.data_at_rest_encryption.disable_by_default on
