Would love it if someone could help me out with this:
The setup is a distributed LAMP architecture hosted on Amazon EC2 instances. MySQL Percona. We use Amazon's EBS snapshots for backups. We have a security requirement for encryption of sensitive data. \
1) Is it possible to encrypt EBS snapshots and not the EBS filesystem from which the snapshots are taken? If so, how? 2) If not, what are the industry standards for encrypting MySQL databases in EC2 + EBS and what are the performance trade-offs for these different methods?
