Simple answer is no. What are you trying to accomplish?

I was hoping that with this new feature (google's) where mysql itself, internally uses keys to encrypt/decrypt tables or tablespaces I could just secure data, simply. Chance is I don't quite get the concept, I believe I have one table encrypted (trying stings on it suggests) yet I can just query it and dump as normal. I understand it's kind of database-file encryption, protection against just grabbing a file and trying to run it somewhere else, am I right? If above is the case the from php perspective nothing should be different, it should be transparent, no?

many thanks

    hi everybody

    a novice type of question - having a php + mysql, can
    one just encrypt (internally in mysql) tables and php
    will be fine?
    If not, would it be easy to re-code php to work with
    this new, internal encryption?

    thanks.
