I have been trying to set this up for my company on a test db so we can have a look, and I just cannot seem to get it to work. No matter what settings I use I cannot get a connection to fail due to lack of encryption. I can connect from any client without any encryption settings. The software is acting like the encryption requirements are not being enforced, and no doubt encryption is not being used. I used Net Manager to set up my sqlnet.ora variables for the server and I know that the Advance Security software is installed properly. Are there any prerequisites to using network encryption? Is it required that SSL be set up for example?
Any ideas on this one? My sqlnet.ora file on the server side now includes the following variables added by NetManager. Again, I have gone into NetManager and attempted to set the values for Profiles> Advanced Security> Encryption. However, even with ENCRYPTION_SERVER set at required, I can connect with any client.
