Appendix E. Security Considerations for DB2

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published a series of security-readiness review checklists for major database vendors such as IBM DB2. The DB2 Database Security Readiness Review Checklist is located at http://checklists.nist.gov/repository/category.html.

From time to time, DB2 will also publish an advisory security-readiness checklist at the IBM developerWorks website: www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/db2/zones/db2udb/.
