Hi all,

does anyone know whether what will be the behavior if,
1) SQL SERVER's Force Encryption is 'No', and certificate is <blank>?

I read on the internet that during client handshake, it will use SQL instance started up Self Sign cert to encrypt the credential, if it is blank.
Even if Force Encryption is set to 'No'.
Pls correct me if i'm wrong.

2) SQL SERVER's Force Encryption is 'No', but certificate is set to
customer generated SSL cert?
If the behavior of item 1 above is correct, does it also mean that i can use customer's SSL cert to encrypt credntial only. Leaving the data(payload) unencrypted.
