Secure Database Code

Hi all you Access Experts,
I need to secure the code on a database that has a subform that changes
on the fly. I have tried everything I can think of.
-MDE: Can't change forms
-Put the form in a separate database and reference it: Can't figure out
how to place the referenced form in a subform.
-Put the code in a separate MDE and reference that: Can't use the class
modules.
-Put the code in an activex dll and reference it: Only class modules
are available.

At this point I could rework the database code to be entirely in
classes and then put them in an Activex dll, but I am looking 13,000
lines of code, each form would have to have it's event's watched, and
I'd have to separate all the functions used in queries.
Any Help would be appreciated
Thanks

Explain this part first. Design changes only require an MDB if you want to
make *permanent* changes to a form while in production use. If you just
need to alter properties of the form in certain circumstances that can
easily be done in an MDE. Those changes just are permanent lasting only for
that instance of the form being opened, but that should be sufficient.

I have no idea where to start on this.

I have taken over the website duties at work. I am still learning PHP and MySQL. I want to have a form where the user enters some finacial info and it is stored in a database. It, obviously, needs to be secure. I know how to make the input form secure. But what about retrieving the data? I was thinking I would use a password-protected secure form for that. Is that enough? What if I happen to view the records using PhpMyAdmin? Does...

I have a sql server database hosted by an ISP. It has credit card fields. I want to make the database secure. My asp.net pages refer to the database as follows: strConnection = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings; Which means they get the connectionstring for the database from a web.config file. The web.config file has the following tags: <appSettings> <add key="ConnectionInformation"

If I have an application that I send out to users, and the application interacts with the database (behind the scenes, no direct sql creation by the users)....do webservices make the app more secure? I always thought of webservices as just a good way to allow users to have an API for them to interact with the database, but are webservices useful if the user never really knows that they are there?

On several occasions, we've come across situations in which our Members have inherited secured, legacy Databases and were told to either eliminate the security mechanism on these Databases or restructure them.

I've seen a lot of questions about how to make secure database passwords. I'm going to go over a method of encrypting a password using the MD5 encryption algorithm for maximum security. First, you will need to download the attached class module (clsMD5.txt) and import it into your database. This class module is the core of what we're about to go over.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
