Use encryption of user and password for client/server communication as default
Default value of the dbm cfg AUTHENTICATION parameter is SERVER. Also the jdbc/jcc driver does not encrypt the user and password values in a connection by default. Two solution options: 1. change default value for dbm cfg authentication from SERVER to SERVER_ENCRYPT 2. use encryption of user and password values in jdbc/jcc connections (modification of driver needed)
