Description Chris Tossing 2011-11-06 20:57:00 UTC
It would be *really* nice for developers of enterprise mobile applications if it was possible to specify a password and have the SQLite database encrypted.  I have read about standard ANSI-C wrappers around the SQLite engine that encrypt and decrypt at the page-level, I believe.  It might not be too much effort and a *great* value if Mono for Android and MonoTouch had this functionality built in.  (I may be wrong, but I feel that the enterprise will end up being one of the major users for Mono for Android and MonoTouch)
