Hi,

I want to make registry key which I am going to install on each computer who
will have access to my web database (made in mysql and php) so I could
secure my database from un authorised access.
Can you help me to do that.
Thanks

That is fundementally a flawed design, to secure your server
resource based on something stored on the client systems and
so out of the control of the server.

If you will be able to store that something in the reg of the client,
then it will be due to the permissions of the executing user on
that system. This means that the user will be able to either change
that, or view it and so do something similar on other systems (that
you did not agree to in your serverside processes, etc.) So, you
would need to be inventive and somehow use a design that lets
you mutually agree, server with info from client, that the something
is in fact what the server gave the client. At some point you are
better off just keeping the whole thing as a serverside storage.

Probably you can look in to other access methods...for example strong
authentication,or multi level AAA..As our friend mentioned this is very much
flawed design....Dont recommend to use it...
