    There are several ways of achieving this, let us know some more information such as what's your target .NET platform (v1.x / v2.x), is it in ASP.NET?

    Instead of me babbling on about the great new addition to ASP.NET 2.0 heres a noice blog entry on securing ASP.NET connection strings in Web.Config files:-)
