Hi All,


We would like to enable encryption for client connection. We planned to do with sqlnet.ora.


SQLNET.ENCRYPTION_SERVER = REQUIRED

SQLNET.ENCRYPTION_TYPES_SERVER = (AES256)

SQLNET.CRYPTO_CHECKSUM_SERVER = REQUIRED

SQLNET.CRYPTO_CHECKSUM_TYPES_SERVER = (SHA512)


Above changes in sqlnet.ora will serve the purpose of encryption. Also let us know the advantage and disadvantage enabling encryption. 



Thanks,

Hari
