encrytion for ontap select


Hi, is anyone using Volume(NVE) or Aggregate(NAE) encryption on their ontap selects?

I can't find any documentation regarding this.

I can see that the commands are available in the CLI.


Any links to documentation or examples very welcome.





Yes, you can use it, please use the ONTAP Documentation.


  1. Can I use NVE and NAE with ONTAP Select?

Yes. NVE and NAE are the only generally available data-at-rest encryption option for NetApp ONTAP Select.



Hello @Roeliezzz,


Both NetApp Volume Encryption (NVE) and NetApp Aggregate Encryption (NAE) are supported in ONTAP Select. Below are the links to reference documentation:
