    Answered my own question...I went back and reviewed the video I saw it in...it's basic encryption using a GELI key stored on the boot drive, not passphrase encryption which would require that be entered at boot. They suggested basic encryption since it's helpful to use in the event a drive fails and you have to send it in for warranty...you don't have to worry about the data on it being read. The basic encryption wouldn't help if your rig gets stolen.

    It must do some sort of authentication, I just don't know how?

    I have been watching this thread and I wonder, how is it that FreeNAS/ZFS can have encrypted drives and autostart the NAS volumes without requiring the user to supply a password or a keyfile? Not trying to cause problems, just curious how it is that they can do it? Thanks!
