Changing network transfer encryption

The StorageGRID system uses Transport Layer Security (TLS) to protect internal control traffic between grid nodes. The Network Transfer Encryption option sets the algorithm used by TLS to encrypt control traffic between grid nodes. This setting does not affect data encryption.

About this task

By default, network transfer encryption uses the AES256-SHA algorithm. Control traffic can also be encrypted using the AES128-SHA algorithm.


  1. Select Configuration > Grid Options.
  2. From the Grid Options menu, select Configuration.
  3. Change Network Transfer Encryption to AES256-SHA or AES128-SHA.
