Hello,

Using a Sybase ASA 9.x database, I want to make sure the data is encrypted
over the network. Do I still need Strong Encryption? I just want to make
sure the data cannot be scraped from the network monitor tool?

Is this still possible with Simple Encryption?

-Robert

Joshua,

Does this mean that the data that travels over the network card, in Sybase
SQL Anywhere 9, is unencypted without purchasing additional add-on's. I
am/was under the impression when purchasing Sybase that there is end-to-end
Encryption, without having to purchase an additional item.

Are you simply saying there is no encryption of data over the network as-is
with ASA9?

-Robert

Database *file* strong encryption is available without extra licensing.
However for communication encryption SQLAnywhere uses a third party
library from Certicom and that needs to be licensed (from iAnywhere) as
an additional licensing item.

Please note that file encryption is an ENTIRELY different thing than
communication encryption. With file encryption, the bytes on disk are
encrypted but they get decrypted when read from disk into server memory.
When a client connects and requests data, the data sent is the data
from memory.

Using communication encryption, the communication link is encrypted so
that any data sent over it is encrypted.

You have four options:
- no encryption
- encrypted file, non-encrypted communication
- non-encrypted file, encrypted communication
- encrypted file, encrypted communication

Hope this helps,
greg.fenton

Simple encryption is still an option.

If simple encryption is good enough for your needs then you can do
end-to-end without purchasing any additional software.
