I had the honor to speak at the first RubyMotion #inspect conference on
Core Data—quite a challenge to put together for a room full of people who are
not too excited about Objective-C. The presentation was a success and the
video recording should be up on the web soon.
I demonstrated a RubyMotion app with a custom persistent store written in
Objective-C to show off how flexible the Core Data stack can be and a lot of
people came up to me afterward asking about custom stores that do encryption.
Well, today I stumbled upon stoeger it’s secure incremental store that
promises full encryption of data at rest in a SQLite database. It looks like
it’s not a fully complete incremental store, yet, but they’ve got a roadmap
that looks quite promising. This is the first commercial custom Core Data
persistent store that I’m aware of. I hope they succeed and that it paves the
way for other options.
