Encrypting the Date Transfer
When your client application (database tool, database application or database interface) and your database are located on different computers, SAP customers can encrypt the data transferred between the client application and the global listener or the installation-specific X server (SAP MaxDB communication server) using SSL/TLS.


  1. Configure your SAP system for SSL/TLS encryption. For more information, see the Installation documentation.
  2. To encrypt the data transmitted between client application and the global listener/X server of the database, select the corresponding option when you log on to the database.
