I do not believe you're able to do that in 2005 ... 2008 offers transparent data encryption, so perhaps this could be good justification to upgrade Smile. Don't quote me though, as encryption is one of my weakest areas as I haven't really used it to much outside of testing so I'm not entirely sure if there are any other options available in 2005.

I'm not 100% sure if you are trying to encrypt all of your data or what you are looking for, but there is an encryption option available on the networking setup of 2005.

Use the SQL Server Configuration Manager, expand the networking configuration, right click on Protocols and select Properties. Once you are there you can set Force Encryption. However, I think this only encrypts the information being sent over the wire.

Have fun!

What do you want to encrypt and why? Who are you trying to hide the data from?

Thanks for the reply;

I want to encrypt the entire DB so that if someone steal the DB, then they are not able to attach it or restore it;

For that you need SQL 2008's transparent database encryption. 2005's encryption is not designed for that, as the keys are within the database itself.

Gail: what if I were to encrypt a single column on request from one of our clients..

1.How is the process supposed to work?
2.How would the process of querying the table with ref to this column work after encryption?

Thanks!!

That's a bit of a vague question.

How would the process of querying the table with ref to this column work after encryption?


If you query it without opening the key and calling the decryption function, you'll see the encrypted data.
May I suggest you read over the encryption section in BoL. It's fairly good. If you have specific questions afterwards, post them.

Yes- I do believe I need to catchup a lot Hehe with the encryption feature on SQL. I think this is the right time I do it.

Thanks Gail for your comments and views!
