Teradata Vantage provides the ability to configure the following security policy options:
  • Restrict users to logging on with specific authentication mechanisms.
  • Enforce the use of, and the strength of encryption algorithms for:
    • Integrity, the checksum used to prevent loss or change of data during transmission
    • Confidentiality (message encryption with a checksum)
  • Assign integrity and confidentiality policy by:
    • User (Vantage user or directory principal)
    • Profile
    • IP address
  • Configure and assign options policies, by user, profile or IP address:
    • For sessions that are encrypted between clients and Unity, require use of clear text between the Unity server and a co-located database to minimize processing overhead.
    • Specify the users who must log on through Unity rather than directly to the database.
You can also configure a policy to allow or deny logons by IP address. For details about IP logon restriction, see Restricting Logons by IP Address.
