The InterfaceType class lists the encryption interfaces supported by TDGSS. The security mechanisms defined in the Mechanism Configurations section must use an encryption interface from this list.
|GSS||Standard interface for the UNIX operating system.|
|SSPI||Standard Windows client interface.|
|Teradata||Default Teradata interface.|
|Custom||Reserved for future use. Allows for the creation and use of a custom security interface when the feature is implemented.|
|Negotiate||The security mechanism is negotiated between the client and server.|
This list of supported encryption interface types only changes if you install a new release of TDGSS that supports a different set of interface types.
Supported interface types appear in the InterfaceTypes section of the TdgssLibraryConfigfile.xml in the following default form:
<InterfaceType> gss sspi teradata custom negotiate </InterfaceType>
