SQL Anywhere web services encryption

The SQL Anywhere web server supports HTTPS connections using SSL version 3.0 and TLS versions 1.0 and 1.1.

To set up transport-layer security for SQL Anywhere web services, perform the following steps:

  • Obtain digital certificates   You need database server certificate files and identity files. Certificates (which can be Certificate Authority certificates) are distributed to browsers or web clients. server identity files are stored securely with your SQL Anywhere web server.

  • Start the web server with transport-layer security   Use the -xs database server option to specify HTTPS, the server identity file, and the password to protect the private key.

  • Configure web clients   Configure browsers or other web clients to trust certificates. The trusted certificate can be self-signed, an enterprise root, or a Certificate Authority certificate.
