connectionstring encryption for oracleinstancestore element

Post by WilliamLee » Thu 03 Oct 2013 09:50

Hi,

Due to security concerns, there is a need for us to encrypt our oracle password i.e connectionstring in oracleinstancestoreelement and use of configsource to store this encrypted connection string in a separate folder just like connectionstring element in web.config.

is this supported in dotconnect? or how do i go about doing this manually?

Thanks,
William

dotConnect for Oracle does not support such feature

You can inherit the OracleInstanceStoreElement class and implement the decryption algorithm in it. We will send you an example of such inherited class with the web.config file by e-mail.
