Transparent data encryption

Vinyl has been tested with SQL Server 2016 Enterprise Edition's implementation of Transparent Data Encryption (TDE). This includes both the Vinyl database itself as well as user databases. There are no known limitations. It is possible to create a database from within Vinyl and enable TDE after-the-fact. Once TDE has been enabled, it is possible to create, modify and drop tables from within Vinyl. All end-user operations, such as sorting, filtering and searching are supported when TDE is enabled.

For more information regarding TDE in SQL Server and instructions for enabling TDE, see the following MSDN article:
