Simple encryption

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. Simple encryption technology is supported in previous versions of SQL Anywhere.

 To use simple encryption
  • Create a database using the dbinit -ea simple option.

    The following example creates the database test.db using simple encryption:

    dbinit -ea simple test.db
