How can I save data that my app uses, to file, in a way that no one can decipher other than my app?
Posted on 2006-07-05
I want to write a quick and simple security app.
The app will contain data (an array) that will need to be saved locally when the app shuts down, but the data is sensitive and commercial. So the saved file must not be able to be accessed or read or deciphered by anyone else other than my application during run time.
Is it possible to store the data in an array then save it to some sort of file as an object? (i.e. not serialized and thus capable of being read in Notepad)
My app will also need to be capable of updating this data file from a source file through design time coding.
Any ideas on best how to meet this requirement?
