Following is a list of security enhancements introduced in SQL Anywhere version 11.0.0.

  • ISYSUSER and ISYSEXTERNLOGIN system tables are now encrypted when table encryption is enabled   Previously, when encrypting a database, or when creating a database with table encryption enabled, the ISYSCOLSTAT system table was automatically encrypted. Now, the ISYSUSER and ISYSEXTERNLOGIN system tables are also encrypted, to provide additional security.

  • Auditing enhancements   Now, auditing can be controlled through Sybase Central. From the Database Properties window, you can enable auditing, disable auditing, and specify which information they want to audit. Auditing information can be viewed in Sybase Central on the Auditing tab in the right pane. See Configuring auditing (Sybase Central) and Retrieving auditing information (Sybase Central).
