Encrypting and decrypting a database

As a database administrator, you can use database encryption to make it more difficult for someone to decipher the data in your database. You can choose to secure your database either with simple or with strong encryption.


If your database is encrypted, compressing it with a tool such as WinZip does not result in a file that is significantly smaller than the original database file.
