SqlParameter.ForceColumnEncryption Property


Enforces encryption of a parameter when using Always Encrypted. If SQL Server informs the driver that the parameter does not need to be encrypted, the query using the parameter will fail. This property provides additional protection against security attacks that involve a compromised SQL Server providing incorrect encryption metadata to the client, which may lead to data disclosure.
