Abstract:  Encrypting database traffic safeguards sensitive data, such as passwords, social security numbers, credit card numbers and other personally identifiable information, against packet sniffing. Packet sniffing is where an attacker tries to capture unencrypted data by using a network sniffer. Network sniffers are freely available, easy to use, and unnoticeable to the client machine or database server. This situation makes safeguarding database traffic a compliance requirement and a business imperative. In this session, you explore the IBM DB2 Transport Layer Security (TLS) capability to help you to safeguard your database traffic and meet your compliance needs.
