Subj:   Re: Column Data Encryption?
From:   Victor Sokovin

  Is there a way to have Teradata at the DBMS level encrypt data in a column, or must the value be encrypted by an external application first before storing in a some varbyte type column?  

Prior to R6, only the latter but not necessarily varbyte as many encryption algorithms use only "normal" chars and their output can be stored as a usual string in TD.

I believe the built-in encryption becomes available as of R6 but probably only as an option. Somebody on the list was warning about the high price they might be charging for it. I did not look further into this yet.
