What is TLS?
- Transport Layer Security (TLS), an IETF standard protocol, secures client/server communications using digital certificates and public-key cryptography.
- Transport layer security enables encryption, tamper detection, and certificate-based authentication.
- Transport layer security can be used to secure communications between the database server and client applications.
- Transport Layer Security (TLS) is the successor protocol to Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
- Secure communication begins with an exchange of messages (a handshake) including server authentication.
- Transport layer security uses server certificates to establish and maintain a secure connection.
- A unique certificate files is created for each server.
- These are generally called “identity” files.
- The identity file resides with the database server.
- Server authentication can be used for SAP IQ client/server communication.
- A database client verifies the identity of an SAP IQ database server.
- This is called “authentication”.
- The client ensures that the server it is contacting is the correct server.
- The client uses a trusted certificate that was used to sign the server’s identity certificate.
- The database administrator keeps the server identity certificate safe on the database server computer.
- Only a copy of the trusted certificate is provided to the clients running on other computer systems.
