Question

What is the Oracle Character Set requirement to create a new Database for CA Advanced Authentication products? Can character set WE8MSWIN1252 be used for the DB creation?

Environment

CA Strong Authentication 8.1

Any supported Operating System (refer to the platform support matrix)

Oracle (supported version)

Answer

Currently CA Strong Authentication requires UTF-8 character set for DB configuration. This character set allows CA Strong Authentication to use international characters including double-byte languages. Other character sets are not tested and certified. So, character set WE8MSWIN1252 is not supported for Strong Auth DB.

Additional Information

Please refer to How to Configure the Database Server for Strong Authentication for more details.
