Encryption of transmissions

P: n/a
Using V9 for LUW, client-server, there is an option when configuring
the connections to use "server-encrypt." It seems that this encrypts
everything in the client-server interchange.

Does anyone know the level ("strength") to which this encryption is
done?

Setting the database configuration manager parameter AUTHENTICATION
to SERVER_ENCRYPT encrypts only passwords sent between client and sever.

You need to set it to DATA_ENCRYPT if you want encryption of data, too.

Some of the lab guys may be able to tell you, but I don't think it's
published.

Note, Viper 2 will support SSL for client/server configuration.

Hi

SERVER_ENCRYPT and DATA_ENCRYPT use single-DES with a 56-bit ephemeral
key generated each time using Diffie-Hellman.
Hope this helps,

regards

Thanks, I don't know what << single-DES with a 56-bit ephemeral key
generated each time using Diffie-Hellman>means, but I have to answer
to others who want to know the answer, even if they don't understand
it either!

BTW, I did mean to write DATA_ENCRYPT above.
