    Re: Database security


    Assuming you're talking about Access, neither solution is particular good.
    To get proper security, you need to implement Access Security, as described
    at http://support.microsoft.com/support...ent/secfaq.asp (For
    Access 97, the database password is next to useless: see
    http://www.trigeminal.com/lang/1033/...asp?ItemID=5#5 for more details)

    Anyone have a clue as to why microsoft has not set the db password to a
    simple md5 hash?!?! At least that way ppl can't grab your password, they
    can
    wipe it out, do whatever the **** they want in the db, and put it back, but
    at least they don't know what the actual password is.......

    If you'll be using Access, you can try messing up with the nt authentication
    to make it somehow the same with SQL to some degree at least ... I always
    use customized security, there are millions of ways to secure your data in
    your own way ... just be creative enough ... cheers!

    Re: Database security


    let's start from the top - what threats are you trying to defend against?
    what data are you storing? what is the value of the data? in which environment
    is it going to run?

    once we have these data in we can determine solutions.
