mysqldump encrypted

Postby cpopham2 » Sat 23 Jul 2005 17:48

I am seriously cinsidering buying the professional version of the software. I like the mysqldump built in feature for backups and restorations of databases. Is it possible to encrypt the dump file as it is being written? If so how? I would prefer to encrypt the file this way because if you have to create the file and then encrypt it, this would create a big security hole. I would like for my end users to put a password into a textbox and then use this password to encrypt the file.

Thanks, Chester

I would guess that if the dump function take a stream as argument you can provide an "de/encrypting stream" and it will be transparent.

MySqlDump component allows you to store a database or its parts as a script. MySqlDump does not perform any file operations, it stores script as text, so you can encrypt it before you write it to disk.
