Introduction to Security with SQL Server 2005
Author: Greg Linwood Date Posted: 11/15/2005 1:48:18 PM
Come along and hear about why SQL Server 2005 is described as “secure by design, secure by default and secure in deployment”. Security is increasingly a major consideration for any project to ensure that the system is not open to malicious threats or attacks from people both inside and outside the organization. SQL Server 2005 has numerous enhancements in the area of security to ensure that your database applications are as secure as possible. This session introduces these enhancements, including:

- Reduction in Surface Area
- Implementing least privilege in SQL Server
- Multiple execution contexts
- DDL triggers
- User-schema separation
- Data encryption using certificates and keys
- Metadata security
