Quality of Protection (QOP) determines the strength of the algorithm used to:
  • Encrypt message traffic between a Teradata Vantage system and its clients (confidentiality)
  • Calculate the check sum that protects message data from being altered during transmission (integrity checking)

The system examines any applicable QOP policy and the DEFAULT QOP and uses the strongest QOP.
