UltraLite obfuscate creation parameter

Controls obfuscation of data in the database. Obfuscation is a form of simple encryption.

Syntax
{ ulcreate | ulinit | ulload } -o obfuscate=value;...
Allowed values

Boolean.

Default

0 (databases are not obfuscated)

Remarks

Simple encryption is equivalent to obfuscation and makes it more difficult for someone using a disk utility to look at the file to decipher the data in your database. Simple encryption does not require a key to encrypt the database.

If you want to make the database inaccessible without the correct encryption key, you must use strong encryption. See UltraLite fips creation parameter.

From Sybase Central, you can set obfuscation in any wizard that creates a database. On the New Database Storage Settings page, select the Use Simple Encryption (Obfuscation) option.

From a client application, set this parameter as one of the creation parameters for the create database method on the database manager class.
