How will you be connecting - ODBC driver for example. On the connection string I should give the options of username and password e.g. in SQL passthrough:
connect to oracle (user="xyz" password="zyx" schema=...);
select * from connection to oracle (....);
disconnect from oracle;
You will also need SAS/Access licensed I believe.

You'll have to clarify for me what "encrypted database" you are talking about. Normally database's have access via drivers - ODBC is one type of driver. This passes your credentials onto the database process which decrypts the information and returns it via the driver to the caller. So, its a bit like a password protected zip file, except there is another layer, you put your credentials into the driver, the driver then passes it on and returns and found information.
