Connection security

Connection security ensures that only authorized users connect to a database. To establish connection security, you must establish OpenEdge-supported user accounts, configure appropriate OpenEdge security domains for these users, and assign one or more users to the security administrator role. Once connection security is established, users who are not security administrators have limited access to the Security menu and some other database options; they can only modify their own passwords and run a quick user report.
Note: OpenEdge supports data privacy for client-server communications with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connections. For more information, see Starting database brokers for SSL connections.
