Automatic encryption decryption without need to type passwords /keys
Posted on 2009-05-14
I am looking for a way to secure/ encrypt files / folders like SQL db, My Sql db, Codes etc.
My objective is that such files or db should be accessible if accessed from same system
but if the file or folder is copied to other location, then the file or folder should be encrypted.
This files/ folders are on systems which are accessed by multiple users.
I do not want to give decryption password to such users and would like to use the system's own unique hardware identity to serve as a password. ( I would want a recovery password )
Is there a way to do it ? What is the simplest approach to achieve this ?
