Hacking Exposé - Using SSL To Protect SQL Server Connections

Chris Bell, Founder / Lead SQL Consultant WaterOx Consulting

Are you someone (A DBA, Developer, etc) that connects to SQL Server to use data? You probably hear a lot about how protected your database can be when at rest. But what about when you connect to SQL and start running some queries? Using a simple hacking technique we will dig into some packets on our network and see what's in them. You may be shocked! Then we will create a self-signed SSL certificate, use it to encrypt our connections on the SQL Server, and see the actual changes in the packet as hackers would. *Warning - do not try some of these demos at work without proper permissions as hacking techniques are used.

About Chris:
Chris offers a unique view of how we live and work with data both now and as we head into the future. Having braved many roles, lifecycles, and battles in the IT world, he has honed his DBA (Database Administration or Do 'Bout Anything) skills in Information Systems and development, focusing on SQL Server. Currently, he serves as the CEO and Lead Consultant for his company, WaterOx Consulting, while remaining the lead DBA at The Motley Fool. You can keep up with Chris' thoughts and technical community activities at WaterOxConsulting.com.
