  • How secure are you looking for?  If you want a level of security that would stop most but not the motivated then you can put a password on the database.

    If you want to try to stop the motivated then you would probably need to encrypt the data prior to insertion.  Even then, the most motivated might be able to retrieve your key unless you had some good obfuscation.
