The Encryption Primer

The protection of your data is very important to many organizations these days. More and more companies and governments are calling for some type of encryption to be used on all systems, but especially in databases. This session will highlight the options in SQL Server for enabling encryption to protect your data. We will examine ways to secure your communication link with IPSec and SSL. This sessions will show how Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) can be used to protect your data files, log files, and backup files while explaining the potential pitfalls of relying on this feature. The talk will also demonstrate practically how symmetric keys, asymmetric keys, and hashing can be used to protect your data at the column level.
