CA Risk Authentication CA Advanced Authentication CA Strong Authentication


We are trying to switch to using Oracle Advanced Security for DB connections. However, we are receiving this error in Riskfort/Risk Authentication startup:

Fri Mar 11 11:50:23.787 2022 WARNING: pid 21064 tid 21064: 2: 0: ArDBConnection::connect: Connection to database [arcotdsn]. user [FDSARCOT_ASU] failed. Error detail [SQL State:HY000, Native Code: FFFFFFFF, ODBC code: [AA][ODBC Oracle Wire Protocol driver][Oracle]ORA-12660: Encryption or crypto-checksumming parameters incompatible] 

The database requires SHA256. I assume the problem is that Riskfort/Risk Authentication does not use the latest ODBC driver 8.0.2 which added this and only support SHA1 now:

Could you please confirm the driver version used in Riskfort/Risk Authentication 9.0 and 9.1? What are the actions we need to take to be able to base using AES256?
