Encryption InnoDB seems don't work

Hello

I start to use encryption plug in for Mysql/InnoDB, but i have some issue, like my data still readable in the ibdata1 file.
However the plug in seems active:

+--------------+---------------+
| PLUGIN_NAME | PLUGIN_STATUS |
+--------------+---------------+
| keyring_file | ACTIVE |
+--------------+---------------+

And my table is also encrypted :
+--------------+------------+----------------+
| TABLE_SCHEMA | TABLE_NAME | CREATE_OPTIONS |
+--------------+------------+----------------+
| ****** | ******* | ENCRYPTION="Y" |
+--------------+------------+----------------+

I added some data in my table, like (francis,France,etc)

But, when i do a "strings ibdata1 | grep "francis", i get :

"francis
francis
0francis"

I'm on red hat 5.6 with mysql 5.7.17.
Is there something i did wrong?Or maybe i didn't understand the purpose of the encryption?

Thanks in advance
Best regards
