Re: Is there some free way to encrypt Oracle network data in Windows

Hi

Seems I was looking at an older version of oracle which included the encryption :(

Still ssl tunneling should work ...

Paula,

There is alot more to "encryption" than just applying a key to a packet's payload to create cyphertext. Rather than have this get ugly, I'd suggest that you actually read up on this.

<http://download-west.oracle.com/docs/cd/B14117_01/network.101/b10772/toc.htm>http://download-west.oracle.com/docs/cd/B14117_01/network.101/b10772/toc.htm

There are concepts such as "authentication", "user rights", "data integrity", "key management" that need to be addressed as well as interoperability with vendors offerings.

I'm sure that an auditor would have a field day with a roll-your-own solution if the security of the data was truly important. I've worked around this in the past with a cross-over cable between app server and database server (network not reachable except via either host) and by putting the web/app/database server software on the same host and running everything on lo - neither of which scale particularly well.

hth.

Paul

Hi

SqlNet supports encryption

I think that you can set that at listener level. Not sure.

Asunto: Is there some free way to encrypt Oracle network data in
Windows


Hi, please
Is there some free way to encrypt Oracle network data transmission in
Windows?
For example to avoid some person capture network data and found the
role passwords.

Thank you
