Protect Your Enterprise Data with Rock-Solid Database Encryption. If hackers compromise your critical information, the results can be catastrophic. You're under unprecedented pressure-from your customers, your partners, your stockholders, and now, the government-to keep your data secure. But what if hackers evade your sophisticated security mechanisms? When all else fails, you have one last powerful line of defense: database cryptography. In this book, a leading crypto expert at Symantec demonstrates exactly how to use encryption with your own enterprise databases and applications. Kevin Kenan presents a start-to-finish blueprint and execution plan for designing and building-or selecting and integrating-a complete database cryptosystem. Kenan systematically shows how to eliminate weaknesses, overcome pitfalls, and defend against attacks that can compromise data even if it's been protected by strong encryption. This book's 3,000 lines of downloadable code examples let you explore every component of a live database cryptosystem, including key vaults and managers, manifests, engines, and providers.
