Subject Re: protecting firebird's database
Author kokok_kokok
I have the same problem, I do not know how to protect the database
against users.

Of course, the best way is to protect the server, but in my case, it
cannot work. My application is distributed via Internet, customers
install Firebird and my application in their PC. I cannot access to
their PC, but they have free access and all rights.

Then, they can manipulated the data, change structures, etc... and it
is a really headache for me.

Does somebody has a clue about how to protect or encrypt the database
file in a PC where the user has the administration rights?
