best security for dispatching access database?

P: 8
Hi,

I'm looking for the best way to dispatch my database to many computers which I don't want any access to the source!

my database is for entring the data by users without see what is inside the database.
I have to use login at the start of database by different users and different access to allow view thre records or updating the records?

with user level-Security, many people can find the users pass and also admin pass with many cracks file which can find easily in internet.
and with mde I can not hide my table of login information, because by importing this table from another mdb file can see all the pass of users!!!

what you think,,,
which way is the best for dispatching like this database?


thanks

Make the mde but keep the passwords and log-in in the code. If you need the flexibility to add new users then you'll have encrypt your passwords table.

Encryption algorithms are varied. There are a lot, I've never made one personally but basically an encryption algorithm takes data and transforms it into something not understandable unless you know how they did it.

A simple one is letter replacement where a letter is substituted for another letter.

You have to program one yourself or find it online, there's no native functionality for it. If you're looking for security then Access notoriously lacks it.
