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.

Interface Type Description
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 TdgssLibraryConfigzfile.xml in the following default form:

         <InterfaceType>
             gss
             sspi
             teradata
             custom
             negotiate
         </InterfaceType>
