I installed postgresql on Red Hat Linux 8.0, everything works fine.
Also installed podbc for windows, I noticed that when I try to connect to postgresql databses if I don't provide username or password, can connect to database.
I need to know if exists a way which forces to validate username and password to connect to postgresql databases.
I appreciate some help.

Read the comments in your pg_hba.conf file, and read the documentation on Client Authentication. Probably you are using the "trust" method, which is the least secure.

Re: PostgreSQL Authentication
You're right, I changed connection method in file pg_hba.conf to md5 adn everything works as I need.
Thanks a lot
