ILMT data encryption "at rest"

Currently, passwords are stored encrypted “at rest” on local storage.

However, other information is not encrypted “at rest”.

Please consider extending encryption to "all" information ILMT utilizes (configurations, logs, customer data, cache, etc) on local storage devices.

This would improve the security posture of ILMT and likely meet the demand for near future requirements.

    Most of the sensitive data is kept by ILMT in teh database. The logs can be encrypted by the mentioned above file system encryption as well.

    With the use of the above capabilities there is no need to introduce additional in-application mechanism for data encryption.
