SQL Server CE Security
Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 Windows® CE Edition (SQL Server CE) connectivity security relies on the security models of Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) and SQL Server 2000.
IIS authentication and authorization are configured to control which users can invoke the SQL Server CE Server Agent, thereby, controlling the users that can perform database synchronization using merge replication or remote data access. IIS can be configured to use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption. This safeguards the data sent between the Windows CE-based device and IIS when database synchronization or remote database access is performed.

In addition, a SQL Server CE database relies on a password and 128-bit encryption for security. For more information, see Using SQL Server CE Database Security Features.
