12.0 Encrypting Data in eDirectory

In NetIQ eDirectory 8.8 and later, you can encrypt specific data when they are stored on the disk and when they are transmitted between two or more eDirectory 8.8 servers. This provides greater security for the confidential data.

You can protect data by encrypting the following:

  • Attributes: For protecting confidential data stored on the disk.

    See Encrypted Attributes.

  • Replication: For protecting confidential data during replication between eDirectory 8.8 servers.

    See Encrypted Replication.
