I have a data set with ~7 million 32-character strings.  I am trying to find the most efficient storage for it.

It needs to be encrypted.
It needs fast searching.
It needs to be stand-alone.
It needs to be as compact as possible for online distribution.

I have tried Absolute Database but the resulting data file is about 800K.
I tried mOrmot SQLite3 and the data file is about 400K.
I tried a simple in-memory string list but it gobbles up about 450K of RAM.

What are my options?
