Encryption types

Choose the encryption type that LCM uses for DSE clusters.

Lifecycle Manager (LCM) can configure DataStax Enterprise (DSE) clusters to use either client-to-node or node-to-node encryption. Client-to-node encryption is enabled by default, and can use certificates generated by the internal certificate authority in LCM, or certificates generated outside of LCM.

Node-to-node encryption is enabled by default, but can be configured by enabling internode communication.
