Description Andrew Dahms 2015-10-21 23:50:39 EDT
The following details must be added to the section on encrypting volumes in the Instances and Images guide:

* Rather than individually creating encrypted volumes, users create a volume 
  type that uses encryption so that all volumes created using that volume
  type are encrypted. This concept must be called out in the introduction.

* In Step 2 of, we need to generate a 16-place hex key. Is there some
  programmatic method by which we can create one?

* In, perhaps we need to add some sub-steps for creating a volume type
  that can be used for encrypted volumes. I couldn't use the default - iscsi -
  and had to create a volume type before I could perform this procedure.

* After users create encrypted volumes, they can view meta data about the 
  encryption by clicking on 'Yes' in the 'Encrypted' volume of a volume under
  Project > Compute > Volumes.

Assigning to Deepti for review.

Deepti - this is a Cinder bug, but the steps are relatively straightforward to follow and the content falls nicely into the MII.
