Internationalized Ordered Encryption (IOE) Scheme

The Internationalized Ordered Encryption (IOE) scheme allows you to use international alphabets and keep lists of data in an alphabetically ordered state. It may also be used for free text fields with mixed language use. 

Use Case: For example, use this encryption scheme if you wanted to encrypt a list of customer or employee names using all available international alphabet characters, and preserve alphabetical order. 

Supported alphabetic characters include:

  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • Chinese (Traditional)
  • Danish
  • Dutch
  • English
  • Finnish
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Norwegian
  • Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Spanish
  • Swedish
  • Thai

NOTE: The IOE encryption scheme is very slow.
