Encrypted attachments

You can encrypt attachments for specific tables.

All attachments to a table use the same encryption type. Encrypted attachments are not searched when performing a text search. Only the standard encryption types are allowed for attachments. The order preserving or equality preserving encryption types are not allowed.

For a session bypassing the Edge Encryption proxy:
  • On a record with attachment encryption enabled:
    • The user can see that there are attachments and the attachment names.
    • The user cannot open or download the attachments.
    • The user cannot add new attachments.
  • On a record without attachment encryption enabled:
    • The user can open and download existing attachments.
    • The user can add new attachments.

For a session using the encryption proxy, the user can open and download existing attachments and add new attachments.
