Encrypted Communication Between Systems

Postby mudasir » Sun Mar 27, 2011 1:21 am

Assalam-o-Alaikum,

I am working on a project and got stuck at a place. I would like to know is it possible to encrypt all communication between two or more systems. Mostly communication is related to DATABACE (MySQL, JDBC), HTTP, HTTPS, LDAP, SMTP.

Looking for some proper solution.
Kind Regards

yes. they all support ssl/tls.
Watch out for the Manners Taliban!
Isn't it amazing how so many people can type "linuxpakistan.net" into their browsers but not "google.com"?

Hi,

Is there anything other than SSL/TLS that can be used to achieve the same.

Assalam-o-Alaikum,

I think i got what i was looking for. There a SSL Wrapper available to Network Daemons name STUNNEL.
Rather than configuring the server with SSL this daemons works well.

why would you use stunnel when all of the above have built-in support for ssl? you just have to configure it to enable it. stunnel just adds one more piece of software that you have to keep running.
