Sec_Data_Integrity database parameter
When you access an SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise database
in PowerBuilder through Open Client, Sec_Data_Integrity
is one of several parameters that support per-packet security for
network-based security services. (For other per-packet security
parameters, see the See Also section.)
Sec_Data_Integrity controls whether your
connection’s security mechanism checks the integrity of
data transmitted to and from the server. When Sec_Data_Integrity
is set to 1, the security mechanism analyzes all packets to ensure
that their content was not modified during transmission.
When Sec_Data_Integrity is set to 0 (the
default), no integrity checking is performed.
You must specify a value for Sec_Data_Integrity before connecting
to the database in PowerBuilder.
For information about the third-party security
mechanisms and operating system platforms that Sybase has tested
with Open Client security services, see the Open Client documentation.

When to use
Your connection’s security mechanism can check data
integrity only when your connection is also using network-based
login authentication. For information, see your Sybase Open Client/Server
Set Release parameter
For this parameter to take effect, you must also
set the Release parameter to 11or higher to specify that your application
should use the appropriate version of Sybase Open Client Client–Library
(CT-Lib) behavior. See the description of the Release parameter
for more information.
Requirements for use
To use Sec_Data_Integrity or any other parameter supporting
Open Client security services, you must meet certain requirements for
using security services in your PowerBuilder application. For details,
see “Requirements for using Open Client security services” in Connecting
to Your Database.
Corresponding CT-Lib connection property
Specifying a value for Sec_Data_Integrity
sets the corresponding Sybase CT-Lib connection property named CS_SEC_INTEGRITY.
To specify that your connection’s security
mechanism checks data integrity:
Select the Ensure Data Integrity check box on the Security
page in the Database Profile Setup dialog box.
Type the following in code:PowerBuilder1SQLCA.DbParameter="Sec_Data_Integrity=1;Release=15"
