Question about NBTTagCompound

Recommended Posts

Yes, the question is:

Why?

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

 

Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.

 

DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.

I am handling sensitive user data in a mod, and I am planning on adding encryption, and while I work on that, I was hoping perhaps I could store the data in an NBTTagCompound rather than the current format, a text file with a different extension, as a quick, temporary solution to users complaining about being able to read their information by opening the file in a text editor.

If I helped please press the Thank You button.

NBT files are not secure, by any means.

Oh trust me, I know, that is why I said as a temporary solution, meaning a day or two at most. I would still like to to this, as long as it isn't overly difficult to achieve, I don't want to spend a lot of time setting this up when I can be setting up actual security.

The answer to your question is "yes."  You just have to be aware that you're on the client side, not the server side.  If the data is on the server, you'll need to transmit it with packets.
