Encrypting DB in Android

Post by davor.TCS » Wed 20 Aug 2014 12:34

1. Suggestion: When using LiteDump it would be nice that on dblclick component that editor is opened as in MyDAC edition.

2. I need db encryption for LiteDAC on android. How to do that?

3. Is it possible to use Direct mode for connection on android, and if not why not?

4. If you do not support DB encryption in Android, will you ever support it? Is this encryption possible at all?

1. We do not plan to implement such functionality. You may raise an issue at http://devart.uservoice.com/forums/1046 ... components.

2. Encryption for Android is available only, if the library supports it.

3. The direct mode for Android has not been implemented yet.

4. We are working on its implementation.

1. What a shame. I thought this would be trivial for you. One has to wonder if this is a problem how will you implement 3/4.

2. I do not know whether it supports, but I do not think.

3. To bad.

4. Im glad :). When do you expect this option to be completed?

1. This functionality will be implemented if it gets enough votes at http://devart.uservoice.com/forums/1046 ... components.
2. The standard library doesn't support encryption, but there are third-party libraries allowing this.
3,4. As soon as we implement the direct mode for Android, we will mention this in http://www.devart.com/litedac/history.html
