    Hi all:
    I have been looking for a good open source library that would let me to encrypt SQLite on the ITouch. This is how needs to work:
    The ITouch will connect to my server (.NET) and it will download a SQLite that is created on the fly. But I need to secure that DB. The issue comes about encrypting the Database on the server side before being downloaded. The app in the ITouch side needs to also use encryption. And here is the problem, that the encryption on client/server side needs to be done in the same way, so it can open the DB with same key when needed.

    Use OpenSSL with librypto. Asymetrical key encryption such as Diffie-Hellman can be used for key (private) exchange... Plus you're standard, if a flaw is found Apple (hopefully) will update it's libraries and your app should be fine.
