Encrypting network traffic

Looker strongly recommends encrypting network traffic between the Looker application and your database. Consider one of the options described on the Enabling secure database access documentation page.

If you’re interested in using SSL encryption, see the Denodo documentation.

Configuring Denodo for Looker
