Data at Rest Encryption for MySQL

Reading this document to enable TDE
I could not understand if using this feature will also encrypt the logs, temps tables, etc or I need to take care of each in addition to the TDE

MySQL allows for full customization, so you need to handle each aspect. You can encrypt a single table via ALTER TABLE, and you can turn on binary log encryption via ‘binlog_encryption=ON’. Those are just two examples, consult the manual pages for all the other options.
