Verifying Mariadb 10.1 encryption

I have set up table-level InnoDB database encryption on Maria DB 10.1.8 (

I'd like to know if there is any way to confirm that the data is truly encrypted. I've tried searching /var/lib/mysql/ibdata1 for sample data in the tables, but I don't know if that's a reliable test or not.


In our test suite we have few tests that insert a string and then search for it within data files. I think this is fairly reliable (and it did help us to find few bugs in the implementation).
