Specifying an alternate encryption algorithm

Derby supports the following encryption algorithms:

By Java convention, an encryption algorithm is specified like this:


The only feedback modes allowed are:

By default, Derby uses the DES algorithm of DES/CBC/NoPadding.

Specify an alternate encryption algorithm when you create a database with the encryptionAlgorithm=algorithm attribute. If the algorithm you specify is not supported by the provider you have specified, Derby throws an exception.
