The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

In particular, When SQLAnywhere initiates a web client procedure, can it negotiate an SSLv3 connection? If so, can it handle these ciphers? Cipher: name = RC4-SHA; description = Cipher: name = RC4-SHA; description = RC4-SHA SSLv3 Kx=RSA Au=RSA Enc=RC4(128) Mac=SHA1 ; bits = 128; version = TLSv1/SSLv3;

Not sure I understand your question:

A SSLv3 HTTPS connection can surely be made from a web client procedure - however, AFAIK, that requires only a web server certificate (i.e. on the server-side), not a client certificate. Cf. the according HTTPS sample in this doc page.

AFAIK, client certificates (i.e. identifying the client against a server) are only used in v12 with MobiLink clients, not with general database or web clients - cf. MobiLink's identify network protocol option for TLS/HTTPS.

No. SSLv3 and TLSv1 connections are supported, but that particular cipher is not. The RSA ciphers we support are:

  • RSA with AES 256-bit CBC encryption and SHA-1 hash
  • RSA with AES 128-bit CBC encryption and SHA-1 hash
  • RSA with RC4 128-bit encryption and MD5 hash

I am guessing from articles like this, you won't be rushing to implement RC4.

And then there is this article on the Quora website which (I confess) I'd never heard of, and which (I confess) I never would have visited if I'd read that it was founded by an ex-Facebooker... but... can Quora compete with StackOverflow?

Apparently, on its treatment of newbies, it sure can! If THIS website goes the way of SCN, perhaps there is a place to go on Quora :)
