Re: Database Security Assessment



For SQL Server, check out the SQL Server Best Practices Analyzer (free download) from Microsoft (there is a version for 2000 and another for 2005). Otherwise, a good tool is SQuirreL from NGS Software (http://www.ngssoftware.com/).

Dear List,
We are in the process of designing a process to audit Database security (parameter setup, audit logs, etc)

Just wanted to know what tools/scripts are available to go about performing such an audit by just scanning the DB (commercial & open source)

Googled on the subject, but would like to get some feedback from people who have already gone through this phase

many thanks to all

Ronish
