 Description  « Hide
Need to have cryptographic functions in firebird was discussed in fb-devel.
Exactly like with hashes I do not add full set of all available functions - in FB4 only subset of symmetric ciphers (both block & stream) and RSA will be supported. If something else will be needed it's always possible to add required functionality later.

It is interesting feature. Not only from database POV.

This can increase Firebird usage in some places as a tool not RDBMS.
I mean use e.g. FB embedded and call crypto functions definded inside engine.
Many times using crypto functions require external libraries not avaiable from some tool/service.
Now we can have it in the one place which we like, know and use from years.
