Depending on the protocol used, all data (including passwords) is usually transmitted through the network (intranet or Internet) in plain text. To maintain the
confidentiality of this data, you should apply transport-layer encryption for both internal communication and message exchange.
For an overview of internal communication and messaging communication, refer to Communication. For an overview of supported security mechanisms on
transport level, refer to the table below.
Note – HTTP connections can be secured by using SSL (HTTPS) and RFC connections can be secured by using SNC.
Transport-layer security is configured in the communication channel for the corresponding adapter type in the Integration Directory.
