dbase encryption

Postby Frederik Gerritsen » Wed Nov 15, 2006 1:30 am

Hi to all,

Maybe a strange question, but is there a possibility to let encrypt a NBDatabase like SSL 168 bits, so decryption is more difficult for others. Maybe a option for the next neobook database plugin.

How about dbfEncryptDatabase?

The current version of NeoBookDB does include a basic encryption feature (see dbfEncryptDatabase). It's difficult to include these types of features because many database formats (like dBase) don't support encryption.

Does anyone know if the commercial database apps like Access, MySQL, Oracle, etc. support encryption?

Access files can be accessed via password protect...

Oracle, MySQL and another databases aren't files by itself, and must be accessed via user & password...

If you can`t encrypt a dBase database... you can encrypt the data within each field... You can create safe encrypt / decrypt algorithms in order to read / write data on the database.

Hi all,

So i understand there is a standard encryption for NBDatabase pluging, have someone experience how save this encryption method is.
