    Securing a folder

    Dinghus Level 1
      Is there a way using CF to have a password protected folder?

      Here is the problem. An engineering firm has a document control system in CF. So all documents for a job are supposed to go through the GUI. What is happening tho is people will go directly to the document storage folder and make changes which messes up the control of course.

      So they have asked for a solution. 1 solution I suggested was having all paperwork stored in a database. Question there is can Excel, autocad, PDF, Word, etc documents be stored in a database?

      Their preferred solution, because overall it will be faster to implement, is a password protected folder that only the application can access.

      I checked the cfdirectory and cffile commands but there is no password function in them.

      Any ideas?
