I have been told that our security team would like to get the traffic between the core and the database encrypted as it is currently in plain text. Is this the case, or are they mistaken? If it is truly in plain text, what steps are required to encrypt communications between the two?
This is going to be based on the database. We just open a connection to the database through normal methods. So, if the database is set to use encrypted transfer, and has all the ducks in a row, including the correct configuration of the SQL client on the Core Server, it *should* communicate just fine and be encrypted.
