Enh.Req. Connecting to Oracle using a secure connection(SSH)

Enh.Req. Connecting to Oracle using a secure connection(SSH)

Postby mrbig » Tue 30 Dec 2008 22:17

I have some users of our software who need to use it from the internet, and I use to pack a cygwin ssh client within the deployment package and include a no password public key within the package. When the user starts the application, our application creates a secure connection to our internet gateway server and creates a tunnel trough ssh to Oracle.

I really do not like the solution. There are no password on the keyfile and therefore I’m actually giving everyone access to nearly everything on the internal network because I not able to incorporate the usage of ssh inside our application.

If the ssh protocol was implemented in the connection level of dotConnect for Oracle then I have an easy and pretty secure way to provide access to our server without the security risks I’m currently having. Of cause this feature gives only meaning when dotConnect for Oracle is running in direct mode.

It really will solve a lot for me, and therefore I have posted this as an enhancement request.

Best regards,
