Securing Notification Services

SQL Server 2005

Maintaining security is a primary task for administering SQL Server 2005 Notification Services. You need to make sure that all applications and users have the permissions required to perform necessary work, but not excessive permissions that can undermine security. Also, you must make sure that unauthorized applications and users cannot read or modify instance and application data.

This section describes the accounts used to deploy, administer, and run instances of Notification Services, describes how to configure security, and documents the database roles used by Notification Services.

For an overview of the Notification Services security model and recommended security practices, see Security Considerations for Notification Services.
