From the Back Cover

Understanding DB2 9 Security is the only comprehensive guide to securing DB2 and leveraging the powerful new security features of DB2 9. Direct from a DB2 Security deployment expert and the IBM(R) DB2 development team, this book gives DBAs and their managers a wealth of security information that is available nowhere else. It presents real-world implementation scenarios, step-by-step examples, and expert guidance on both the technical and human sides of DB2 security. This book's material is organized to support you through every step of securing DB2 in Windows(R), Linux(R), or UNIX(R) environments. You'll start by exploring the regulatory and business issues driving your security efforts, and then master the technological and managerial knowledge crucial to effective implementation. Next, the authors offer practical guidance on post-implementation auditing, and show how to systematically maintain security on an ongoing basis. Coverage includes
  • Establishing effective security processes, teams, plans, and policies
  • Implementing identification and authentication controls, your first lines of defense
  • DB2 in Windows environments: managing the unique risks, leveraging the unique opportunities
  • Using the new Label Based Access Control (LBAC) of DB2 9 to gain finer-grained control over data protection
  • Encrypting DB2 connections, data "in flight," and data on disk: step-by-step guidance
  • Auditing and intrusion detection: crucial technical implementation details
  • Using SSH to secure machine-to-machine communication in DB2 9 multi-partitioned environments
  • Staying current with the latest DB2 security patches and fixes

Understanding DB2 9 Security by Rebecca Bond, et al (IBM Press) offers nice, well-thought-out coverage of DB2 security for DB2 DBAs, developers, and really anyone in need of securing DB2 data. This book offers a nice comprehensive guide to securing DB2 particularly in terms of leveraging the powerful new security features of DB2 9. This book is well-organized and offers in-depth coverage of some perhaps-difficult DB2 security issues such as identification and authentication controls, label based access control (LBAC), encryption ("at rest" and "in flight"), auditing and intrusion detection, using SSH, and managing patches and fixes.

The book is written for users of DB2 on Linux, Unix, and Windows platforms, and not for the z/OS flavor of DB2. But since there are many similar issues, DB2 for z/OS admins will find much to interest them, too.

While you're at it, check out the new IBM Press book Mainframe Basics for Security Professionals: Getting Started with RACF. It is not specifically about database security, but it is interesting for mainframers concerned about security and RACF nonetheless.

Understanding DB2 9 Security isn't for the light programmer's library: it's an in-depth, comprehensive guide - the only one - to securing DB2 and harnessing the new features of 9, and comes from a security deployment expert and the IBM DB2 development team itself. As such, college-level holdings strong in advanced computer database and security holdings will find it a top pick, covering everything from security processes and plans to implementing design in the DB2 environment.

I thought from the qualifications of the writers that this would be an excellent book. Instead it falls into the mediocre category, rehashing in poorly editted language information that is presented better elsewhere. The clarity of the "explanations" of core concepts leaves much to be desired (e.g., Kerberos) and is dreadfully short on usefulness (Okay, how do you get an AIX version of DB2 to authenticate using Active Directory?). Maybe I just wanted too much: I mean, it's an okay book, just not great.
