yes, you can try

function ENCRYPTBYPASSPHRASE
Encrypt data with a passphrase, using the TRIPLE DES algorithm with a 128 key bit length.
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms190357(v=sql.105).aspx

and Decrypt with  DecryptByPassPhrase
Decrypts data that was encrypted with a passphrase.

Yes, TripleDES is one of the algorithms available in SQL 2008 R2.  There are two Triple DES algorithms available actually... 128 bit and 192 bit versions.  These instructions provide the commands needed to encrypt, then view the decrypted values.

If you want your encrypted data to be decrypted externally (or vice versa) then it is imperative that any keys are symmetric and if going to another database then there are fairly strict rules how to export that key.

There is also the choice of using external programs to encrypt / decrypt as exemplified by the code extract (down the bottom of) : http://forums.asp.net/t/1891297.aspx

If completely within SQL Server, then it does support TrippleDes very well and the above posts contain most of the relevant links.

A walkthrough example of triple des is presented by Pinal Dave (interestingly, has been an ative member of EE) : http://blog.sqlauthority.com/2009/04/28/sql-server-introduction-to-sql-server-encryption-and-symmetric-key-encryption-tutorial-with-script/

Three Considerations for Containers

Containers like Docker and Rocket are getting more popular every day. In my conversations with customers, they consistently ask what containers are and how they can use them in their environment. If you’re as curious as most people, read our article on Experts Exchange.
