    Table with encrypted column

    Since I did not recieve any replies on my wallet post, I figured I will re-phrase
    my question.

    Has anybody ever setup a table with an encrypted column? Is so, can you
    point me to some good documentation on how its done.

    I am looking to do something like this:

    CREATE TABLE tde_test (
    id NUMBER(10),
    data VARCHAR2(50) ENCRYPT
    )


    INSERT INTO tde_test (id, data) VALUES (1, 'This is a secret!');
    COMMIT;

    Than I want to do a select and see the value ''This is a secret!'

    I have read bits and pieces but I cant find a complete document show step by step instructions, with comments on how to do it.

    I am running Oracle 10.2.0.1.0 on AIX 5.3 box.

    Thanks in advance to all that answer.
