Protecting Your SharePoint 2010 Content with SQL Server 2008 Transparent Database Encryption


About This Video
One of the most highly publicized feature of SQL Server 2008 is the ability to transparently encrypt all of your SharePoint content databases at the SQL level, without the need to modify any settings in the SharePoint farm. This type of transparent encryption allows organizations to comply with governmental and industry regulations that require content to be stored in encrypted format, but doesn’t introduce any new complexities to a SharePoint environment, as the application itself is unaware that any encryption is happening. This session focuses on the best practices, tips and tricks, and real-world advice on how to setup and deploy SQL Server 2008 transparent database encryption for a SharePoint 2010 farm.
• Learn how to setup SQL Server 2008 for transparent encryption of content databases.
• Examine limitations, best practices, and deployment tips for implementing this new capability.
• Take an in-depth look at the security precautions and advice for the encryption methods that can be used and what makes sense for SharePoint.
