Data security in couchDb


How the data is protected in Couch DB.
Does Couch stores data in non readable format ?

Dear John,

CouchDB stores data in its internal format, which is not readable by obvious. One way to check this data is to locate the .couch file on your machine with CouchDB and try to open it. It indeed opens up in non-readable format.

Hope, this solves your query.



Yes Idene, I agree. CouchDB database file is hard to interpret, and doesn’t make any sense when it is opened. At least, you need database credentials to work that out.
