SQL Server getting security boosts

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From InfoWorld]

Microsoft at its Tech Ed conference in San Diego on Tuesday will tout plans to add data encryption to its SQL Server database and seek federal government security certification for the platform as well.

The company also will release to manufacturing a tool that advises on best practices for administering SQL Server databases.

Native data encryption will be featured in SQL Server 2005, which is codenamed Yukon and due next year, according to the company. Its just another layer of protection for customers to secure their data, said Tom Rizzo, director of product management for SQL Server at Microsoft. With the encryption support, a hacker breaking into the system to query data still would need a password or keys to de-encrypt data, Rizzo said. PKI infrastructures are supported by the data encryption function.
