Encryption in SAS® 9.4, Sixth Edition

Provides information about installing, configuring, and using the SAS product SAS/SECURE. Also discusses SAS proprietary and industry-standard encryption algorithms and third-party strategies for protecting data and credentials in a networked environment (TLS and SSH). In SAS 9.4, SAS/SECURE is included with the Base SAS software. In prior releases, SAS/SECURE was an add-on product that was licensed separately. This change makes strong encryption available in all deployments (except where prohibited by import restrictions).
