Enable RMI JDBC security

Before you begin

You may need to configure an SSL listen port channel.

Secures RMI JDBC communitation with a data source with a check for administrator authentication. For more information, see Using the WebLogic RMI Driver (Deprecated).

To enable JDBC RMI security for a data source:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the left pane of the Console, expand Environment and select Servers.
  3. Select the Configuration tab, then select General.
  4. Click Advanced.
  5. In RMI JDBC Security, select Secure.

    If the value of Secure is used, a configured SSL listen port is required.

    If the value of Compatibility is used, the server instance allows communication over an unsecure channel with the application's subject and no check for inbound administrator authentication when using RMI to access a data source. This setting reflects the legacy implementation behavior for RMI access to a data source and is a potential security vulnerability as it provides a client uncontrolled access to a database.

  6. To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
    Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).
