Teradata Generic Security Services (TDGSS) is the software subsystem that manages Teradata Vantage Advanced SQL Engine network security. TDGSS is directly involved in:
  • User authentication and authorization
  • Encryption of network traffic
  • Enforcement of security policy
TDGSS simplifies security management by providing:
  • Configurable authentication mechanisms
  • The option to provision and manage users in an LDAPv3-compliant directory
  • A set of tools for configuring and administering security functions

TDGSS is an extension of the industry-standard GSS-API, as defined by Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Request for Comments (RFC) 2743, “Generic Security Service Application Program Interface Version 2, Update 1.”
