To enable message encryption:
  • Set the ConfidentialityDesired property for the authentication mechanism to yes (default).

    For details on how to view or edit security mechanism property settings, see General Rules for Editing the TDGSS Configuration.

  • Enable encryption from the client application that establishes the session. For instructions on how to enable encryption, see the user guide for the application.
If you use certain third-party database activity monitoring software, enabling encryption may prevent the monitoring software from detecting the username for a session. Teradata Vantage activity monitoring functions are not subject to this restriction. See Monitoring Database Access.
