      Description

      The following PS documentation pages mention incorrect encryption support for PXB:
      https://www.percona.com/doc/percona-server/LATEST/management/data_at_rest_encryption.html
      https://www.percona.com/doc/percona-server/5.7/management/data_at_rest_encryption.html

      These pages mention the following:

      Percona XtraBackup currently doesn't support backup of encrypted general tablespaces.
      Percona XtraBackup currently doesn't support backup of tables encrypted with Keyring Vault plugin.

      This is incorrect. PXB2.4 and PXB8.0 support backup of encrypted general tablespaces and Keyring Vault plugin.

      However the following encryption features are not supported and should be included in the above pages:

      PXB2.4:

      1. System tablespace encryption
      2. Parallel doublewrite buffer encryption
      3. Redo log encryption
      4. Undo log encryption
      5. Master key encryption

      PXB8.0:

      1. System tablespace encryption
      2. Parallel doublewrite buffer encryption

      Sergei Glushchenko, Please add to the above list if anything more should be included in the documentation. Thanks.
