Client security options

MobiLink clients (SQL Anywhere and UltraLite) use a common set of connection parameters to configure transport-layer security.

trusted_certificates protocol option

MobiLink clients use the trusted_certificates protocol option to specify trusted MobiLink server certificates. The trusted certificate can be a server's self-signed certificate, a public enterprise root certificate, or the certificate belonging to a commercial Certificate Authority.


Verifying certificate fields

The certificate_company, certificate_unit, and certificate_name protocol options are used to verify certificate fields, an important step for server authentication. It is strongly recommended that you verify certificate fields if you are using a third-party Certificate Authority to globally-sign certificates.
