Server-side encryption is not currently implemented in Swift. There are some efforts underway, but nothing has yet made it to a release. Any encryption done at this time will have to be done client-side.

Yes, but for example I can use external projects (such as the Barbican), or create new ones, and add them to get my goal. To do this I just add the middleware written in python to the pipeline in the .conf file? The middleware should comply with some special or just be .py file?
