We are looking into encrypting the SQL_PASSWORD, which is in plain text in our login script.

I am sure some of you would have already done this before and would be grateful if I could get some help/suggestions please.

Many thanks

Hi Ajantha,

Not a straight answer for your question, it is an alternate method (we are using it)
1. Create another simple file and add all the information like - password, connection string etc. Encrypt the whole file.
2. Change your Login script to call above encrypted file, which should able to connect using connection string inside the file.

Hope this makes some sense
