In advance, I apologize for asking this particular question, as I'm 
coming from the Linux world, but I wanted to know if encryption is 
natively supported on FreeBSD for miscellaneous ZFS pools/datasets.

If such functionality does exist, how exactly would I go about initially 
setting up encryption for a particular ZFS pool/dataset and manually 
decrypting it at boot using a passphrase? It seems as though this 
particular topic has not yet been mentioned in the official handbook, 

In advance, thank you for your response!
