Using SQLCipher to encrypt SQLite database in Python (Windows 64bits)

Using SQLite encrypted database with SQLCipher

Step 1 – Compile our own sqlite3.dll which will be used by Python

Gather all the stuff needed to build SQLCipher in Windows :

  • MSVC compiler which could be found on Microsoft website here.
  • ActiveTCL which could be found on ActiveTCL website here.
  • OpenSSL for windows which could be downloaded here (doesn’t download the light version). Install-it in a directory without special characters.
  • The source code of SQLCipher from Github. It’s recommended to clone the repository in a directory without special characters.
