    How to Secure data transfer ?

    Hello

    I am working with a client on a project. The project is simple FORM to Database thing, that make use of AJAX. We want the data to be transferred to the database SECURELY.

    I need to know what are the steps to ensure that ? I know that by using the SSL, we can do that. What are the other ways that we can use with SSL ?

    Also, we want that the data must be stored ENCRYPTED in the database, please guide me know how to do that.

    Thanks & Best Regards

    Its simply a matter of installing the SSL Certificate -- for specific installation instructions you would have to contact your web host -- and ensuring that all trafic to the script is being sent through the encrypted channel.
    Creativity knows no other restraint than the
    confines of a small mind.

    As for storing encrypted data, do a search through these forums, those forums, and Google. There are many topics on it.
