Security

  • RSA now included with SQL Anywhere   You no longer have to purchase a separate license to use RSA encryption, unless you are using FIPS-certified algorithms.

  • ECC encryption available with HTTPS   You can now use ECC encryption when you use HTTPS.

  • New mlsrv10 -fips option   You can now specify -fips when you start the MobiLink server, and thus force all secure connections to use FIPS-certified algorithms. This setting does not affect nonsecure streams.

    See -fips mlsrv12 option.

  • New mluser -fips option   The MobiLink user authentication utility now provides an option that enforces the use of FIPS-certified security.

    See MobiLink User Authentication utility (mluser).

  • FIPS security is supported on more platforms   FIPS-certified security is now supported on more platforms. For a list of supported platforms, see Supported platforms.

  • Simplified way to specify security streams   The syntax for specifying security options has been simplified on both the server and the client by treating security options as separate network protocols. The following protocols are now supported: TCP/IP, TLS (synchronization over TCP/IP with TLS security), HTTP, and HTTPS. The UltraLite Security parameter is removed.

    See:

  • Integration with operating system   By default, MobiLink clients now trust certificates that are already trusted by the operating system on which they operate.
