SQL Anywhere 12.0.0 » MobiLink - Getting Started » Introducing MobiLink Technology » Understanding MobiLink synchronization



There are several aspects to securing data throughout a widely distributed system such as a MobiLink installation:

  • Protecting data in the consolidated database   Data in the consolidated database can be protected using the database user authentication system and other security features.

    For more information, see your database documentation. If you are using a SQL Anywhere consolidated database, see Keeping your data secure.

  • Protecting data in the remote databases   If you are using SQL Anywhere remote databases, the data can be protected using SQL Anywhere security features. By default, these features are designed to prevent unauthorized access through client/server communications, but should not be considered a sure-fire method pf preventing a serious attempt to extract information directly from the database file.

    Files on the client are protected by the security features of the client operating system.

    If you are using a SQL Anywhere remote database, see Keeping your data secure.

    If you are using an UltraLite database, see Securing UltraLite databases.

  • Protecting data during synchronization   Communication from MobiLink clients to MobiLink servers can be protected by the MobiLink transport layer security features. See Transport-layer security.

  • Protecting the synchronization system from unauthorized users   MobiLink synchronization can be secured by a password-based user authentication system. This mechanism prevents unauthorized users from synchronizing data. See MobiLink users.
