Does someone have the experience on this or can someone please point me to somewhere that i can read more info about this?
Is your webserver and mysql not located on the same local network?
Also, one solution would be to encrypt the sensitive data before transfering and storing it in the database. This would ensure if the database was hacked that the data would still be secure.
Thanks a lot for your reply. Yes, the webserver and mysql are actually located on the same local network. Does that mean the data back and force between coldusion and mysql is secure?
Encrypting the data is a good idea. Do you know if it is easy to do to do that under coldfusion?
Again, thanks a lot.
I don't know your specific local network setup but your data should be secure.
One method of encryption is to use the ColdFusion encrypt and decrypt functions. However, you are limited to using ColdFusion to write and read data.
