It is possible to encrypt the communication between Harvest and the Oracle database.
The encryption is defined at the ODBC layer, on the DataDirect Connect for ODBC.
This is controlled using the EncryptionMethod parameter in the odbc.ini file.
If set to 0 (No Encryption), data is not encrypted.
If set to 1 (SSL), data is encrypted using the SSL protocols specified in the Crypto Protocol Version
What are the SSL protocols supported?
Release : 13.0
Component : CA Harvest Software Change Manager
The following versions of TLS are supported by Harvest.
TLSv v1.0, v1.1, v1.2
This is configured on the odbc.ini file for the DataDirect Connect for ODBC driver.
If your server supports TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.2, you can specify acceptable cryptographic protocols with the following key-value pair:
