- What is being requested:
Truststore password encrypted in odbc.ini
- Reason for request:
Currently, the ODBC SSL truststore password is stored in clear text in the odbc.ini on *nix platforms. This is a security risk.
- Possible workarounds:
For customers who have licensed ODBC drivers on Windows platforms, the truststore password is encrypted in the registry. Users could copy the encrypted password from the registry and paste into the odbc.ini file on *nix.
This workaround isn’t available for customers who only run ODBC drivers on *nix.
