sqlite database encryption

Hi !

I'm trying to encrypt/protect an existing database with its app.

They're working well together but I don't understand the signing process described in https://developer.blackberry.com/java/documentation/sqlite_security_1981753_11.html

I've received and used the 3 files sent by the BB authority on the .cod.

Do I have to create another app to encrypt/protect my existing DB ?

What is the "code signing key file" ?

... Well I'm lost, I need help ^^

Re: sqlite database encryption

The link below should help.  It's for persistent objects instead of SQLite, but the concepts and general steps for setup are the same.


Protect persistent objects from access by unauthorized applications
