Abstract: 

SMB is premier file sharing protocols in Windows and other environments. The SMB3 protocol supports advanced encryption and integrity protection, in addition to high-performance RDMA transports. RDMA is an increasingly popular choice, but the encryption protection is not available in prior dialects of SMB over RDMA. In this talk, we will discuss protocol changes to support full encryption and integrity over RDMA for the SMB3 protocol. We will discuss the environment which these features are required, and dive into the implementation and performance.
