Securing Databases (SQL Server Compact Edition)

The Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition (SQL Server Compact Edition) Database Engine provides two features for securing local databases on the supported devices:

  • Password-protecting SQL Server Compact Edition databases
  • Encrypting SQL Server Compact Edition databases

SQL Server Compact Edition also provides connectivity security options.
