Local database encryption

What does setting 'local encryption' on a Lotus Notes database provide? What is the difference between simple, medium and strong encryption?

Local encryption is designed to prevent people who have physical access to a Domino database from reading the data in it. Physical access means that a person is standing in front of the server that holds the database or has it on their laptop. In such situations, the normal database ACL is not enforced, so someone could read data they are not supposed to see.

Full information about this feature, including the three protection levels, can be found in Domino Administrator Help. Go to the Index view, then see Encryption / Databases.
