i have never heard of that, it would require your sql server to be able to decrypt your encoding automatically. your best solution for that would probabaly send the query over an ssl or ssh connection, unless you want to go for the obfuscation method, then just make your table names cryptic and unhelpful. one last method would be to encode your records in some way, send those records coded, store them coded, and when you retrieve the values, decode them again. they query would technically be encrypted and stored that way, but anyone could see what it is your sending.

here is a link that should help for ssl: http://msdn.microsof...y/ms189067.aspx

if you md5'd your password and are concerned about that, maybe other options (because i too am aware that md5 is somewhat easy to crack) maybe sha256 or sha512 as the one way hash, they are more secure (for now) functions.
