Description

Encrypting data on the client side before it reaches the server appears to be very useful for protection against data breaches and meeting regulatory requirements. However, it is challenging to implement it for databases without losing functionality. We compare our [ZeroDB] approach to other ways of implementing it (deterministic encryption with SQL/NoSQL databases, CryptDB). We show security strengths and weaknesses and performance implications of these approaches and appropriate areas to apply them.
