ITTIA DB SQL provides an "exceptional" authentication mechanism whether connecting over TCP/IP, shared memory, opening a database file directly, or Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

A new release of ITTIA DB SQL has new security and authentication features with flexible data safety techniques to software developers for optimum level of data security in embedded applications by encrypting both network communications and storage media.

The new ITTIA DB SQL provides an "exceptional" authentication mechanism whether connecting over TCP/IP, shared memory, opening a database file directly, or Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). ITTIA DB SQL's support for the SSL protocol provides a secure channel for remote data management. This protocol offers protection from eavesdropping,  unauthorized interception of communications, and uses certificates to prevent session hijacking.

Authentication works with both the ITTIA DB Server and the ITTIA DB Synch Server. Moreover, passwords are never transmitted over the network. Credentials for back-end databases, such as Oracle and MicrosoftTM SQL Server, are managed by the ITTIA DB Synch Server.

ITTIA DB SQL provides client/server applications susceptible to attacks with  encryption features that secure communication path for data distribution and transfer all the way from storage media to the client. With ITTIA DB SQL, developers have the opportunity of configuring remote client applications to use SSL when connecting to ITTIA DB on any operating system, including Windows, Linux, Android, ThreadX, and QNX.

ITTIA DB SQL storage encryption provides support for the AES-128 and AES-256 block ciphers.The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), a specification for the encryption of data that is commonly adopted by the U.S. government and others across the world.

ITTIA DB SQL offers exhaustive support for date and time arithmetic through the SQL standard interval data type. Applications can easily calculate the difference between any two timestamps in years, months, days, hours, minutes, or seconds, as well as adding or subtracting time intervals. Date and time can also be formatted and parsed with custom string formats.
