Last updated on FEBRUARY 12, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Workflow - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Using Oracle Workflow Builder with databases that have network data encryption on. The sqlnet.ora file in the database has the following lines in it:



With these lines, we get the following error:
Error: 1700: Could not connect with username/password <apps>/<apps_pwd>  ('ORA-12599: TNS:cryptographic checksum mismatch').  When trying to connect to the database. 

Taking out the ENCRYPTION_SERVER and ENCRYPTION_TYPE_SERVER lines,  able to connect to the database. Is there support for Oracle Network Data Encryption with Oracle Workflow Builder? There are notes that suggests using an older algorithm like RC4_40 (see notes in the Reference Section ) . But use of that algorithm is not possible due to business standards. Will there be support for more algorithms in the near future ?
