UltraLite obfuscate creation option

Specify simple obfuscation for the data in the database.

Allowed values



0 (databases are not obfuscated)


Obfuscation makes it difficult for someone using a disk utility to look at the file to decipher the data in your database. However, obfuscation is not secure against skilled and determined attempts to gain access to the data. Simple obfuscation does not require a key to encode the database.

You must use strong encryption to make the database inaccessible without the correct encryption key.

From SQL Central, you can configure obfuscation in any wizard that creates a database. On the New database storage settings page of the Create Database Wizard, select the Encrypt the database and Use simple encryption (obfuscation) options.

From a client application, set this option as one of the creation options for the CreateDatabase method on the DatabaseManager/ULDatabaseManager class.
