Enterprise Open source

Grafana Enterprise database encryption

If you are using Grafana Enterprise, you can change Grafana’s cryptographic mode of operation from AES-CFB to AES-GCM, and integrate with a key management system (KMS) provider.

Changing your encryption mode to AES-GCM

Grafana encrypts secrets using Advanced Encryption Standard in Cipher FeedBack mode (AES-CFB). You might prefer to use AES in Galois/Counter Mode (AES-GCM) instead, to meet your company’s security requirements or in order to maintain consistency with other services.

To change your encryption mode, update the algorithm value in the [security.encryption] section of your Grafana configuration file. For details, refer to Enterprise configuration.
