Use SSL (-ssl) to specify that all database and client connections use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for data privacy. SSL provides an authenticated and encrypted peer-to-peer TCP/IP connection.
Note: SSL incurs heavy performance penalties, depending on the client, server, and network resources and load. For more information on SSL and the security features of OpenEdge, see OpenEdge Getting Started: Core Business Services - Security and Auditing.
