Connection Security


Hi All,

Trying to flush out the issues with security for a PB app connecting to MS SQL Server. It occurs to me that if someone has access to the .exe they could use a hex editor to peek in side. I tried it and sure enough the connection password is plainly visible. Is the answer for this to compile to machine code? Does that work to obscure it? Any other suggestions? I'm hoping there's a best practice for this out there somewhere.
