RE: Security and SSD



fixed

A credit card number should be stored with one-way encryption anyway.
You should never be able to see the unencrypted number.

If that's all it takes to pass their audit, then it's a big joke. No
wonder so much credit card fraud is going on.
So, it's perfectly ok if anyone can execute
select name, mothersmaidenname, ssn, yearlysalary, creditcardnumber from

myfile
and see the data as long as, while it's on disk, it's encrypted?
