OpenEdge SSL architecture

The following figure shows the general support for SSL in OpenEdge.
In the figure, SSL clients start from the top and access SSL servers moving toward the bottom. From this figure, you can see where OpenEdge supports authenticated and encrypted connections from an initial SSL client connection through intervening middleware and servers all the way to data access using the OpenEdge RDBMS. All of the indicated connection pathways that join components to each other or to the Internet support SSL in one form or another.
