Once you have enabled encryption for the data dictionary, you can selectively encrypt tables in the data dictionary. Once encrypted, a table's contents are scrambled on disk, which prevents someone from examining your data with a low-level file viewer.
Use the following steps to encrypt the two tables of this data dictionary:
1. If the TABLES node of the DemoDictionary connection is not expanded, click the + next to this node to display the nodes for the CUSTOMER and EMPLOYEE tables.
|2.||Right-click the CUSTOMER node and select Encrypt. After a brief moment, the glyph that appears to the left of the CUSTOMER table node will change. The new glyph depicts an encrypted table.|
|3.||Now right-click the EMPLOYEE node and select Encrypt. The glyph for this node will soon reflect that this table is also encrypted.|
