Configuring SSL Authentication through ODBC

Configuring SSL Authentication through ODBC

You can configure SSL authentication for Microsoft SQL Server through ODBC using the DataDirect New SQL Server Wire Protocol driver.
  1. Open the odbc.ini file and add an entry for the ODBC data source and DataDirect New SQL Server Wire Protocol driver under the section [ODBC Data Sources].
  2. Add the attributes in the odbc.ini file for configuring SSL.
    The following table lists the attributes that you must add to the odbc.ini file when you configure SSL authentication:
    Attribute
    Description
    EncryptionMethod
    The method that the driver uses to encrypt the data sent between the driver and the database server. Set the value to 1 to encrypt data using SSL.
    ValidateServerCertificate
    Determines whether the driver validates the certificate sent by the database server when SSL encryption is enabled. Set the value to 1 for the driver to validate the server certificate.
    TrustStore
    The location and name of the trust store file. The trust store file contains a list of Certificate Authorities (CAs) that the driver uses for SSL server authentication.
    TrustStorePassword
    The password to access the contents of the trust store file.
    HostNameInCertificate
    Optional. The host name that is established by the SSL administrator for the driver to validate the host name contained in the certificate.
