New TLS 1.2 support - SQL Server

Post by tonymeadors » Mon 13 Jan 2020 16:31

Our SQL Server clients are very happy this has been added.

The only reference I really see about this is in the new features
lists for 8.1.2.

SQLServer data provider
Added TLS 1.2 support in the Direct mode.

So if my SQL Server Database is TLS 1.2 only
is that it? Is there no connection string or specific option to set?

Perhaps the connection 'negotiates'...hmmm.

Question:
Don't I need to set any value on the UNIDAC side to indicate we
will use TLS 1.2 rather than 1.1?

thanks,
tonyM

To use TLS 1.2 in UniDAC, you don't have to configure anything on the client side. When you connect to SQL Server, a list of supported protocols, including "TLS 1.2" is sent to the server.
The server itself decides which protocol to use for data encryption.
