    Phoronix: Samba 4.12 Bringing Much Faster Encryption Performance With GnuTLS

    Samba 4.11 was just released a few weeks back with big scalability improvements, but looking ahead to Samba 4.12 will be some big performance improvements for those leveraging encryption...

    I thought the 5 orders of magnitude mentioned in the article would have been some sort of typo - 5x faster. But link shows it is indeed 50x faster in that test.

    I hope they soon sort out their kerberos stuff - having two competing implementations with different feature sets is a problem, especially in enterprise distros.

      As always when projects get their crypto into shape, this is great news! Thanks for that and hopefully the remaining patches get merged in time.

          50 times faster is still not 5 orders of magnitude. That would be ~10^5 times faster.

            Is this also going to be used on samba servers?

              Insofar that you turn on smb encryption on you samba server, yes. Encryption is an SMB 3.0+ feature.

              For reference:

              https://www.samba.org/samba/docs/cur...mb.conf.5.html , search for "smb encrypt".
