Re^2: Opening an Encrypted DB_File databaseby crabbdean (Pilgrim)
|on Jul 14, 2004 at 16:38 UTC||Need Help??|
Hi iburrell, I've already encrypted each key/value pair in the DB_File database using a 256 bit cipher. But I was discussing with my flatmate who works for the government doing cryptography and she said it would be wise to also encrypt the file. I'm trusting her judgement on that.
I attempted to unlink the file as suggested. Doesn't work as DB_File puts a lock on it. The temp file opens the vulnerability of leaving a decrypted version lying around which I would really like to avoid.
I'm unsure how to go about putting it onto a ramdisk. Can you suggest further on how to go about this?
Thanks for your help.
