Build Secure Applications with ITTIA DB SQL

Submitted by ittia on

Developers of mission-critical applications and business intelligence solutions can experience critical safety vulnerabilities if malicious systems on the network or malware applications intercept access to confidential data. These faults can be caused by lack of security for data management and data distribution.

The new release of ITTIA DB SQL is a significant step forward, as its new security and authentication features offer flexible data safety techniques to address these problems. Using these comprehensive features, software developers can achieve the greatest level of data security in embedded applications by encrypting both network communications and storage media.

Leverage Your Desired Authentication Solution

ITTIA DB SQL provides an exceptional authentication mechanism, whether connecting over TCP/IP, shared memory, opening a database file directly, or Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). ITTIA DB SQL's support for the SSL protocol provides a secure channel for remote data management. This protocol offers protection from eavesdropping, the unauthorized interception of communications, and uses certificates to prevent session highjacking.

Authentication works with both the ITTIA DB Server and the ITTIA DB Synch Server. Moreover, passwords are never transmitted over the network. Credentials for back-end databases, such as Oracle and MicrosoftTM SQL Server, are managed by the ITTIA DB Synch Server.

Secure Encryption for Enterprise-Wide Management Solutions

ITTIA DB SQL provides client/server applications – that are susceptible to attacks – with comprehensive encryption features that secure communication path for data distribution and transfer all the way from storage media to the client.

With ITTIA DB SQL, developers have the opportunity of configuring remote client applications to use SSL when connecting to ITTIA DB on any desired operating system, including Windows, Linux, Android, ThreadX, and QNX.

The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is a specification for the encryption of data that is commonly adopted by the U.S. government and others across the world. ITTIA DB SQL storage encryption provides support for the AES-128 and AES-256 block ciphers.

Built-in Date/Time Lapse Arithmetic

ITTIA DB SQL offers exhaustive support for date and time arithmetic through the SQL standard interval data type. Applications can easily calculate the difference between any two timestamps in years, months, days, hours, minutes, or seconds, as well as adding or subtracting time intervals. Date and time can also be formatted and parsed with custom string formats.
