SQLCipher is a C library that implements an encryption in the SQLite 3
database engine.  Programs that link with the SQLCipher library can have SQL
database access without running a separate RDBMS process.  It allows one to
have per-database or page-by-page encryption using AES-256 from OpenSSL.
SQLCipher has a small footprint and great performance so it’s ideal for
protecting embedded application databases and is well suited for mobile
* as little as 5-15% overhead for encryption
* 100% of data in the database file is encrypted
* Uses good security practices (CBC mode, key derivation)
* Zero-configuration and application level cryptography
* Algorithms provided by the peer reviewed OpenSSL crypto library.
SQLCipher has broad platform support for with C/C++, Obj-C, QT, Win32/.NET,
Java, Python, Ruby, Linux, Mac OS X, iPhone/iOS, Android, Xamarin.iOS, and
SQLCipher v3.2.0 is based on SQLite3 v3.8.6.
