Part VII. Security

IN THIS PART

The Information Architecture Principle in Chapter 2 states in part:

Information is an organizational asset, and, according to its value and scope, must be organized, inventoried, and secured....

In the last edition of this book, security was a single chapter in the Enterprise Database Management part. In this edition, I've given security its own part to give it the space and significance that it deserves.

The basic model of principles and securables has remained constant throughout SQL Server history, but with new features and cryptology, the subject of security is growing more complex. This part also includes my solution for row-based security.

If SQL Server is the box, then this part is about padlocking the box to keep out those who should be out, while extending welcome to those who should be allowed in.
