Encryption of JDBC username and password while connecting to database


I have an issue with encryption of JDBC adapter username and password while connecting to the database SQL Server 2000. The username and password are not getting encrypted (do not want to enrypt the actual data b’se of performance) and transferred in plain text which becomes security issue for us.

We are looking for third party drivers which resolve the above issue. Does any of the following help us.

  1. “Data direct connect for JDBC” drivers from DataDirect.
  2. msbase, mssqlserver and msutil.jars helps us?

If anybody have any idea in using the correct drivers, pls suggest me.


What leads you to believe that your credentials are not being encrypted?
