What is it all about?
SQLCipher is an open source library that provides transparent, secure 256-bit AES encryption of SQLite database files.
it has been adopted as a secure database solution by many commercial and open source products, making it one of the most popular encrypted database platforms for Mobile, Embedded, and Desktop applications.
◾SQLCipher has a small footprint and great performance so it’s ideal for protecting embedded application databases and is well suited for mobile development. ◾Blazing fast performance with as little as 5-15% overhead for encryption 100% of data in the database file is encrypted. ◾Uses good security practices (CBC mode, key derivation). ◾Zero-configuration and application level cryptography. ◾Algorithms provided by the peer reviewed OpenSSL crypto library.
