Encryption of Datapackets

Post by Guest » Mon 21 Nov 2005 12:26


we use your great DBExpress Driver for Oracle.

Is there an possibility to encrypt the data transfered from the server
to the client and vice versa?
We plan to make an application with one central DBMS and Clients
all around the world. The clients have direct acess to the DBMS.

You cannot configure DbxOda to encrypt the data transferred from the server
to the client. You can configure Oracle client to work with SSL protocol instead.
You cannot configure security connection with DbxOda in "Oracle Net (Core Lab)" mode. You should use additional third-party components for encrypting TCP traffic.

Hello Paul,

can you suggest some additional third-party component to make the work.

Thank you.
