We will then discuss what’s involved in building more secure applications, and introduce the SQLCipher library as a means of enhancing application-level security with database encryption to secure user data. In addition to discussing how SQLCipher works, the session will provide a high-level overview on how to use SQLCipher with various development tools.
Tom will conclude the presentation and share learnings from a recent android project in which he used both SQLCipher to encrypt a device-resident SQLite** database, and, ProGuard to obfuscate the android source code.
*SQLCipher is an open source extension to SQLite that provides transparent 256-bit AES encryption of database files.
**SQLite is the world’s most popular relational data store. It runs on many mobile devices including the: iOS, Android, Windows, and Blackberry platforms.
