Data traffic encryption in the Oracle database
You can encrypt transactions between Sterling B2B Integrator and the Oracle database. Encryption prevents anyone who is outside the system from viewing the data that flows between Sterling B2B Integrator and the database.
The following list describes the important aspects of enabling database encryption:
- At installation, encryption is turned off by default. If you want your database transactions to be encrypted, you must enable encryption.
- The encryption can be enabled at any time.
- Encryption applies to all database transactions between Sterling B2B Integrator and the database.
System performance might be impacted when encryption is enabled. The extent of this impact depends on your hardware, database configuration, transaction volume, and the relative amount of processing time that is spent by the system against other activities.
