I am currently planning to write a diary type application using Ruby and
FXruby, and I am therefor looking for a secure way of storing data.
Using plain text files is of course out of the question, but I was
thinking of using SQLite, could that be secure enough? The idea is that
I don’t want people to be able to simply view a users diary entries by
opening a file (preferrably, the data should be secured with a password
(and username) defined by the owner).
I am fairly experienced with databases and programming, but rather new
to Ruby and having to think about the fact that other people might be
using my program and therefor unknown people might have direct access to
Thanks for any answers, tips and suggestions
