    I need to encrypt the json hierchical database and retrieve for registered users

    I don’t want to use a flat database table in SQL because the data doesn’t work that way

    1. Is there a way to encrypt and decrypt json data with dotnetnuke?

    2. Will registered users be able to download a .json file by viewing source code?

    3. Any best practices with D3.js

      Hi TechieMD, D3 is going to need unencrypted json data - and yes a user will be able to get at the json. That said, you could secure the json file via DNN/Evoq and grant read to specific roles/users. As long as your site is served only via https, your json is hard to get at in transit. But, the key is thinking of the json data as what's really being protected - D3 makes a presentation of that data. No data, no presentation.

        Thanks so much,

        I think it can work through a MongoDB and a node.js application, which prompted my followup question.


        Basically, I want to serve data as needed in small pieces for visualizations; not the entire dataset at once as a large JSON file.

        The data needs to be hierarchical, so NoSQL and MongoDB are new to me...
