2011-11-30 10:21:59 -0500

We are happy to announce that version 1.0 of SQLCipher for Android has been released. With this latest release, a collaborative effort between The Guardian Project and Zetetic, much work has gone into stabilization of the library across various Android versions. For those unfamiliar, SQLCipher for Android allows a drop-in replacement of the standard SQLite database used on Android to encrypt application databases.

Now that SQLCipher is supporting Android with this latest release, we have written up a tutorial covering both the integration of SQCipher for Android into an Android application as well as the steps required to build SQLCipher for Android from source. The latest binaries are available here. In an era where mobile security continues to be a threat, protecting your data becomes ever more important.
