encryption

I was wondering if it is possible to add database encryption support to Alfresco.

I am evaluating Alfreso for use as a "Secure" File server of sorts and I have a requirement of encrypting the data as well as encrypting the data as it is sent/received.

I solved the sending and receiving part by adding SSL to JBoss.

But now I was wondering it is possible to instruct Hibernate and Lucene to use the mysql commands AES_Encrypt and AES_Decrypt when writing and reading data?

Also in the same vein; I have discovered that mysql can be set-up with SSL support which can be connected to through Connector/J, but I was wondering how to setup the db.url to include the string 'useSSL=true'

Any response will be greatly appreciated.
