vSphere supports disk encryption and customer-managed keys when managed through policy configuration within the vCenter 6.5+ (learn more). For this functionality, encryption occurs at the hypervisor level which is transparent to the VM. Once enabled within vCenter, no additional configuration is required for the CPI.
