In today's electronic world, information security has become one of the most critical issues facing companies. External and internal security threats continue to grow in intensity, threaten the daily safety of sensitive database information. Many database security methods focus on data in transit, without taking measures to protect the data where it is. Organizations that need to protect sensitive information, database encryption should key part of their security policy. This research produces a novel method for database encryption. It proposed ASCII Primary Key Record (APKR) method, which suggests to encrypting all tables except the primary column. Many encryption methods suggest using one public key for all records in the table, which produce a problem in producing encrypted data. APKR is depending on encrypting the database with the RSA method, with using a different public key for each record in the table that means no duplicate producing in the encrypted data.
