django-sqlcipher

SQLCipher is an SQLite extension that provides transparent 256-bit AES encryption of database files.

In order to encrypt a new database or query existing data you must key it before using it.

This app does it for you. You only need to specify the database key in your project's settings.py file.

For more about SQLCipher take a look at http://sqlcipher.net/.

Requirements

  • python-sqlcipher (Python compiled with SQLCipher support)
