I'm not a PC kinda guy, and don't deal with ms access.  But, I asked a 
couple of the PC support folk here, and no one is aware of any native 
crypto support in ms access.

My guess is that you'll need to write a java component on the host 
running ms access that can talk to the database, and then either talk 
sockets or use an RMI interface to talk to it.  So long as it's Java on 
both ends you can do just about any kind of encryption you want from 
within Java (of course, you'll need to install JSSE and JCE packages).

The other option would be if there's a type-3 JDBC driver -- which 
normally will have a server component on the dbhost and a client 
component on your client machine, in this case the server hosting the 
jsp.  And then the question you'll want to ask is whether there are any 
that do encryption between the client and the server.

Go to, and from 
there you can do a search for drivers that Sun is aware of -- I think 
the search returned 11 different vendors.  There may also be other web 
sources for the information, but the Sun page is the only one I've 
checked out.  Since type-3 drivers talk their own proprietary protocols 
between the client and server components, it's certainly possible that 
one or more of them can use TLS or some other encryption mechanism.

I wish I had a more helpful answer for you, but all I can really tell 
you is where I'd look.
