Securing database data
I was going to start working on a new project that includes storing some basic customer information, but would like to put some measures in place to increase security a little bit.
Would an appropriate approach be to use the MySQL functions AES_ENCRYPT() and AES_DECRYPT() for encrypting field data?
I realize there will be a performance hit when encrypting/decrypting, but if it causes a delay of couple seconds seconds, I would consider it reasonable.
If this is the appropriate approach, how would I then go about performing searches on those encrypted fields?Visit The Blog | Follow On Twitter
