Hi ... and thanx alot 4 ur cooperation in advance ...
i'm using

developer 6i
Database SQL Plus 9i


i have a table includes
student_number NOT NULL NUMBER(10)
student_password VARCHAR2(10)

as the student_number field is the username for the student,
however, when the user type his password i want to encrypt this password into the database , so

that when i log into SQL Plus i do not see the same password (encrypted or digested)
and also when i make the validation on the password when retrieving the password from the

database i want to make the decryption ...

really i read about the DBMS_OBFUSCATION_TOOLKIT

but i'm asking , is it used at the FORM LEVEL ? or DATABASE LEVEL ?

and how is it used ?

Best regards

Quite greedy: three threads over the board. Your other copies are removed.

As DBMS_OBFUSCATION_TOOLKIT is a database package I would use it on the database. The documentation should reveal how it is used Smile
