Reusing IV breaks the basic principle in disk encryption that block (sector)
must not be decrypted to correct plaintext if it is relocated.
(IOW, you must not use the same IV with the same key for another sector location.)

Please note that dm-crypt allows being configured to use such insecure
ciphers/IV to provide compatibility with older/foreign encryption systems only.

That said, IV is not the only place in dm-crypt that depends
on position (sector offset).

Dm-crypt allows using AEAD (authenticated encryption).
For now, it requires stacking over dm-integrity, but the idea was to use devices
that can store per-sector metadata natively.

In AEAD, offset (sector) is part of authenticated data (so decryption of relocated
sector fails). For AEAD, we use random IV. So your patch is not complete.

I think the proper solution would be to disable zone append for the dm-crypt
target completely, just set a flag for the whole target.
(Or somehow emulate that global sector offset).

Please do not introduce such complexity as you tried in this patchset.
I am sure this will backfire on us later.

If you want to use encryption with zoned devices properly,
it must be designed for it. FDE is not.

In this case, probably btrfs fs encryption layer is the proper place that allows
configuring different keys or tweak zones IV to allow block-based encryption.

Allowing to stack over dm-crypt in the meantime is OK, but disable these
incompatible zoning features completely, please.

We often use online reencryption - which can switch arbitrary encryption
parameters for active devices expecting sector offset is invariant.
I am not sure if this can even work with zone append and provide expected security.

Also, this brings the question if dm-integrity has the same issue...

Thanks,
Milan
