PostgreSQL provides an optional package of encryption/decryption functions called `pgcrypto`, which can also be installed and used in HAWQ. The `pgcrypto` package is not installed by default with HAWQ. However, you can download a `pgcrypto` package from [Pivotal Network](https://network.pivotal.io).
