By default, communication packets are not encrypted; this poses a potential security risk. You can secure communications between client applications and the database server over TCP/IP using simple encryption or transport-layer security. Transport-layer security provides server authentication, strong encryption using ECC or RSA encryption technology, and other features for protecting data integrity.
