FIPS 140-2 Login Password Encryption

Adaptive Server 15.5 supports the FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic module.

FIPS 140-2 certifed Certicom Security Builder GSE encrypts login passwords in a transmitted login packet, in memory and on disk, if you use the configuration parameter FIPS login password encryption:

sp_configure ’FIPS login password encryption’, 1
Note: A Security and Directory Services license is required to enable this parameter. If the parameter is not enabled, the OpenSSL security provider performs login password encryption.
