  • HTTPS based connections to QueryGrid Manager (TLSv1.2)
  • Communication policies can be defined at different security levels for data transfers between the initiating connector (the connector starting the query) and the target connector (the connector receiving the query). Security levels can be set for authentication, integrity, and encryption
  • Fabric supports encryption over the wire
  • Fabric communications between Advanced SQL Engine and Machine Learning Engine are authenticated
  • Fabric supports LAN and WAN communication policies
    • LAN Policy – Enables key based authentication, credentials are encrypted using AES-128 encryption standard
    • WAN Policy – Enables key based authentication, both credentials and data are encrypted using AES-256 encryption standard
