Transport security with DotConnect

Post by andriyzhurba » Fri 14 Feb 2014 13:51

Dear All,

we have a customer requirement to encrypt the whole communication between the Oracle database and the client. The easiest way would be to use transport security and communicate with the database via https/ssl. How can I reach it?
As of now, we use DotConnect in direct mode. Will we have to switch to OCI then?

Many thanks in advance!

dotConnect for Oracle supports SSL in the OCI connection mode. To establish a SSL connection, you should properly customize Oracle Client, so that it would support SSL. You shouldn’t make any changes in the provider. The whole process of signal encryption is performed by Oracle Client in this case.

We are investigating the possibility of supporting SSL in the Direct mode. There is no timeframe at the moment.

A SSL Connection in Direct mode would be a very good feature.
