I am using Architect and I need to pass in a username and password in my VB Source code to mount a network directory. Is there any way I can protect the password in the source code? Otherwise anyone has the access to the source code will see the password. It is a big security concern.
Can anyone give me any help?
There may be several options on how to do this:
a) Don’t store it, prompt for it. Although a bit tedious for the User to have to Input this information over and over, this may be the best approach (from a Security Stand Point).
b) Store it on a Table and use Encryption (you may have to build your own Encryption routines)
