The mission of the Security Virtual Chapter is to provide guidance and education, and to foster open discussion on security topics as they pertain to SQL Server and its environment.
Welcome to the PASS Security Virtual Chapter
Security is hard, and is hardly convenient - yet in today's world, it becomes absolutely necessary. Security touches upon infrastructure, code, and even things in the "physical" world. It is much more than Administration and Development.

The Security Virtual Chapter will cover the following topics and much more:
- SQL Server surface area and Attack vectors (SQL injection, etc)
- Encryption
- Security standards and best practices
- Forensics
- Audits and regulatory compliance
- Authentication and authorization

Row Level Security (RLS)
Presenter: Geri Reshef
Date: Thurs, Dec 3, 2015 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PDT

Row Level Security (RLS) is a built in technology that was added to SQL Azure in the beginning of 2015, and later to the 2016 CTPs. This technology enables the administrator to control the rows the user can access and manipulate in the table (in addition to controlling access to the table itself).

In the presentation a possible solution will be shown, for previous versions which do not support the new RLS technology, several scenarios how to implement the new feature, performance issues, a critical review, etc.

Level: 200
