Hi all. I want to connect to a database but using a secure manner. (to retrieve sensitive information). does JDBC support a secure connection ? can I use JSSE ? I know a little about JSSE (to be more specific, I know only the secure sockets). any ideas or solutions to perform this functionality ?
Typically security in the data layer would be infrastructure security, rather than code-based security. i.e. an app server running on a properly administered server connecting over the LAN to a DB on a simmilarly properly administered machine. In which case implementing SSL/TLS is an unecessary overhead.
