Securing Field Data Without Encryption

If you need to "truly" secure one or two data fields on a form, but you do not
want to use encryption (because of the headaches of managing keys, etc), here
is an approach that may work for you. Place the protected data fields onto a
new, response-to-document form and add a reader names field to that form. (You
can set the reader names value to a single role, or base it on a formula,
etc). Then, on the main form, provide a button which displays the protected
data fields by grabbing the response document and collecting the field values.
You could also create a computed-for-display field on the main document which
tries to get the protected fields from the response document - if it fails,
display a message such as "you do not have access rights to view this data
element." The nice part is, Reader fields in Notes are "truly" secure - this
is not like hiding a field or using different forms for the same document.
