When I want to do hdfs-encryption, is temp swap space can be encrypted?

No, the temp swapspace is not encrypted. So we do have the vulnerability with intermediate shuffles. However, this is temporary short lived data and may not pose a major issue depending on the customer/usecase.

If this is still a concern, then put the temp swap space to a separate disk and encrypt the disk at OS Level
