Another alternative would be to implement the encryption hooks in
Firebird, or intercept the read/write calls and encrypt at the page
level. That won't make your data secure (see many previous
discussions) but may be good enough for government work. Combine
that with Kjell's suggestions, and you have actual security at
twice the cost.
