Hello all my brothers,
I want to encrypt the whole access database with vb.net.
I don't want to encrypt the tables or records in database.
I want to encrypt the whole access database.
Is it possible?
If it is, Please advise me or show me how to do it.
Thanks all and Hoping any helps.
Why? There's no point to it.
In order to use it, you would have to decrypt the database for the life of the application session. This completely strips your database of the encryption "protection" allowing anyone to copy/open the database during the time your app is running.
Then, when your app is done with the database, you'd have to re-encrypt it.
But, what happens if your app crashes when the database is unencrypted?? There that data sits, out in the open.
The bottom line is if data security is a concern, don't use Access databases.
Thanks Dave Kreskowiak,
But Actually I am working with SQL DataBase.
to export some tables, We exported into New created Access Database.
the thing I want to do is encrypting that exported access database.
because I don't want user can easily open the database.
I think if i can encrypt the whole database , it will be secure a little for the End_User.
And sorry for my bad English too.
If there is way , please help me.
