[Samba] Server 2012 Encrypted Shares

Hello Samba folks!

Server 2012 has an option to enable in-transit data encryption with Windows
8 clients using SMB 3.0.


I ran across a presentation from Michael Adam where he mentioned that the
SMB 3.0 implementation in Samba 4 supports "new crypto (sign/encrypt)". Not
sure that means what I want it to but I remain hopeful.  :-)


In all my efforts, I can't seem to get this to work in the lab.  Does Samba
4 support SMB 3.0 encrypted shares?  This would include either where the
Samba server is serving out an encrypted share as the file server or as a
client connecting to a Server 2012 encrypted share.

Many thanks!
