UltraLite DBKEY creation option

When creating a new UltraLite database, this creation option provides an encryption key for the database.


No key is provided.


If a database is created using an encryption key, the database file is strongly encrypted by using either the 256-bit AES or FIPS-certified 256-bit AES algorithm. By using strong encryption, you have increased security against skilled and determined attempts to gain access to the data.

Any leading or trailing spaces in option values are ignored. The value cannot include leading single quotes, leading double quotes, or semicolons.
