The IOM Bridge for COM
supports encryption of network traffic between the client and the
IOM server. Weak encryption support (through the SASPROPRIETARY encryption
algorithm) is available with Base SAS software. Stronger encryption
requires a license to SAS/SECURE
on the server machine.
On the Windows platform,
license allows the encryption algorithms that are available
through the CryptoAPI to be used. On other platforms, encryption algorithms
are included in the SAS/SECURE
Windows must be installed on the Windows client machines in order
to use the CryptoAPI. For more information, see Client Installation.
When you define a ServerDef,
you can use the BridgeEncryptionAlgorithm and BridgeEncryptionLevel
attributes to specify the encryption algorithm and the types of information
that are encrypted. For more information, see the Object Manager package
