secured JDBC call (receiver adapter) from PI

Hello experts, I was digging through SAP documentation but could not find any information about the possibility of secured JDBC calls from PI. Is it possible to configure the JDBC receiver adapter in a way that it does a secure (encrypted) connection to a database server?

    Hi Sanjay,

    For configuring encryption in the JDBC Communication Channle you can refer to the followimg Wiki Content:

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/wiki?path=/display/java/handlingDATETypecolumnforJPAEntityforuseWebServices

    Additionally, for Oracle Database, the following link talks about the Encryption Parameters that are set:

    http://javasight.wordpress.com/2008/08/29/network-data-encryption-and-integrity-for-thin-jdbc-clients

    and SAP Note: 1078420 will guide how to set these parameters in the JDBC communication channel.

    Regards,

    Alka.

    hi Sanjay,

    I don't know whether you got a satisfactory reply from the above post in terms of feasibilty on XI end but then what i feel is there is no direct way of securing data in the communication channel itself but rather its a block of security procedures and concepts which are :

    1) Access should be secured if supported by the provider.

    2) SAP recommends that you secure these connections by HTTPS which can be used or is used by most of the adapters.

    3) Principle of least privilege should always be employed.

    Regards
