How hard would it be to provide encrypted network traffic for Seaweedfs?

If I wanted to add encryption, what files would I need to read/touch?

Thank you.

I am planning to add encrypted network traffic via json web token. But I simply don't have time yet.

It's a distributed system, handling admin requests and common read/write requests.
These are folders you need to thoroughly understand before embarking on it:

Cool. I've used AES128/256 before (based on in my Go job scheduler (, which is a distributed system; albiet a very simple one.  Now that there is a Go/amd64-assembly implementation of elliptic curve P256 for AES-GCM ( courtesy of CloudFlare, I would use that for safety and speed (the speedup from the amd64 assembly code is 20-30x versus Go-only on some operations).

Hi Chris, 

Is this network traffic encryption feature done in version 0.92? Also is there a way to use https to download/upload file?

Thank you,
