SqlCeConnectionEncryption enabled

Use this connection string to enable encryption on the database.

Data Source=MyData.sdf;Encrypt Database=True;Password=myPassword;
File Mode
=shared read;Persist Security Info=False;

The Encrypt Database="True" pair is really not necessary as the presence of the Password-parameter itself turns on encryption for the connection.


This connection string (Encryption enabled using SqlCeConnection) can be used for connections to SQL Server Compact.
