Arnie Rowland
Using Schemas for Security – Part 2
Continuing the introductory session from the last meeting on using SQL Server Database Schemas for security, Arnie will illustrate how Schemas may be providing both more or less access control than expected. After a short refresher about Ownership Chaining, Arnie will demonstrate how deliberately breaking Ownership Chaining can ensure that users have access to some data from a table, but not all of the data, providing additional security granularity. (For more background, see the description for last month’s session: Using Schemas for Security.
