Audit event collection from Sybase ASE. Support of password encryption.
I am working on a new project for my customer and I try to onboard Sybase ASE audit events (version 16.x).
First of all, let me mention that despite the fact that RSA states that v16.x is not supported I have managed to successfully connect and pull logs from Sybase servers. To achieve this I had to use R3ase27.so (ODBC driver). In this specific setup no password encryption was applied during authentication towards the database server.
A challenge arises with production DB servers. To become more specific, our customer enforces encryption for login authentication (SyBooks Online). To the best of my knowledge, RSA relies on the Progress DataDirect drivers (version 7.1 according to the odbcinst.ini file in /opt/netwitness/odbc). Are you aware of the authentication methods (No Encryption, Encrypt Password, Kerberos Authentication) supported by this implementation? Has anyone managed to work with password encryption?
I really appreciate your feedback and sharing of experiences & ideas.
I am sorry from my research on the R3ase27.so ODBC driver for Sybase it appears that the Encrypt Password Authentication Method is not supported.
Reference: Is the encrypt password authentication method supported with the Sybase IQ driver?
Product: Connect for ODBC Sybase IQ driver
Version: All supported versions
The Encrypt Password Authentication Method is not supported with the Sybase IQ driver.
