JDBC Thin and SQL*Net encryption

        We have been told by our auditors, that all SQL*Net traffic must now
be encrypted to prevent snooping! We have one or two commercial JDBC apps
using Thin connection methods. I suspect the answer is no, but other than
programmatically within the code, is there any way to allow JDBC thin apps
to utilise encrypted SQL*Net links to the DB listeners? I know OCI can as it
gets to read the SQLNET.ORA configuration, but if I understand correctly,
thin is entirely "standalone".

        Apologies in advance, I have only recently started "playing" with
JDBC coding for my personal interest, so my knowledge of the technology may
not be entirely correct.
