TechBookReport on 'Cryptography In The Database'
TBR writes "As the subtitle of this book reminds us, encrypting data is the last line of defence once the more traditional defences of firewall and server security have been breached. And, of course, securely encrypting data in a relational database is a difficult problem fraught with traps for the unwary. Database encryption done badly provides a false sense of security which benefits nobody but the person attempting to crack the system. All of this becomes clear in Kevin Kenan's 'Cryptography In The Database'."
