This DB2 Chat with the Lab was held on April 1, 2008 .
There has been plenty of material written on the subject of database security. Unfortunately, most of these papers and presentations focus only on describing how a particular database security feature works. Customers are often left confused as to when to use what technology - and what security issues each feature is helping them tackle. This has prompted us to build the IBM Data Security Server Blueprint: an easy to use document that can greatly simplify security planning for users of DB2 and IDS data servers. The blueprint outlines the major threats to a data server, and the recommended countermeasures direct from the Lab security teams. The authors of the blueprint will discuss how it was developed, how it works, and most importantly how you can use it to help lock down your data server. Our speakers for this session will be Sal Vella, Vice President, DB2 Development for Linux, Unix and Windows and Business Intelligence; Walid Rjaibi, Security Architect and Relational Data Services Development; and Belal Tassi, WW DB2 Technical Evangelist.
