Briefcase password and encryption


(hamberg) #1

How can I put a password and encrypt a local briefcase file so it is encrypted at rest on the local workstation?

Hi,

You can encrypt already created briefcase, but you can’t use encryption during creating a briefcase.

By other hand, you can override TDAFileBriefcase.InternalWriteBriefcase and encrypt data manually.
for decryption, you need to override LoadTable, LoadProperties, LoadTables methods also.

Thank you, that is what I needed to know as I have to have data encrypted at rest. Now I won’t have to use SQL Lite.
