Issue/Introduction

Client wants to verify that report data cannot be modified once it is on the CA View database.

Resolution

Once a sysout/report is written to the database, it cannot be modified.

Also, the data is written to the database using light encryption so it is not in a readable format.

If full encryption is turned on then an encryption key is required to read the data.
Further, the reports are not written sequentially to the database files. By that I mean, if you have more than 1 database data file, 1 page may be written to 1 file, the next page may be written to a different file. The Index is used to retrieve the reports.
