UltraLite fips creation parameter

Controls whether the new database should be encrypted using AES or AES_FIPS strong encryption.

{ ulcreate | ulinit | ulload } -o fips=value;KEY=value;...
Allowed values

Yes (use AES_FIPS), No (use AES)




The only way to change the type of database encryption is to recreate the database with the appropriate fips or obfuscate creation parameter. You can change the database encryption key by specifying a new encryption key on the Connection object. Users connecting to the database must supply the key each time they connect.

From Sybase Central, you can configure strong encryption in any wizard that creates a database. On the New Database Storage Settings page, select the AES FIPS Algorithm option. You must also set and confirm the encryption key.

On Palm OS, use the ULEnableFipsStrongEncryption method.

On all other platforms, set this parameter as one of the creation parameters for the create database method on the database manager class.

To deploy a FIPS-enabled database, copy all appropriate libraries for your platform. See Setting up and deploying AES_FIPS database encryption in UltraLite.
