is an open source encryption library and command-line tool for secure data storage and access in SQLite databases and mobile applications. It is a fully encrypted, standards-based, cross-platform database engine that provides an added layer of security to existing SQLite databases. SQLCipher
uses the industry-standard Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and 256-bit key to provide secure data storage and access.
SQLcipher provides secure, encrypted storage for sensitive data in an SQLite database.
Secure Data Storage:
SQLCipher uses the industry-standard Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and 256-bit key to provide secure data storage and access. The encryption key is derived from a user-supplied passphrase, which is hashed and salted to ensure data security.
SQLCipher supports multiple operating systems, including iOS, Android, Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, making it easy to deploy to any platform.
SQLCipher is an open source project, licensed under the BSD license. The source code is available on GitHub
and is free for anyone to use, modify, and redistribute.
Compatibility with SQLite:
SQLCipher is compatible with the standard SQLite API, making it easy to integrate into existing applications.
SQLCipher does not contain any backdoors or vulnerable encryption algorithms. All encryption is done using AES and 256-bit keys, making it virtually impossible to crack.
SQLCipher is designed to scale up to large databases, allowing for secure storage of large amounts of data.
SQLCipher is designed for high performance and is optimized for embedded databases. It can support millions of transactions per second, making it suitable for mobile applications and high-traffic web applications.
SQLCipher provides data protection from potential attackers, including malicious actors and government authorities.
SQLCipher includes an audit log feature, which can be used to track user activity and detect suspicious activity.
Easy to Use:
SQLCipher is easy to install and configure, making it simple to get started with secure data storage.
