Database Security by Silvana Castano and Others

Database security is a crucial aspect of designing and maintaining database systems, as it ensures the integrity and confidentiality of the data stored in them. Database security involves various techniques and methods to protect the data from unauthorized access, modification, or disclosure. Some of the topics covered in database security are:


  • Security models and policies: These define the rules and principles that govern the access and usage of the data, such as discretionary, mandatory, or role-based access control.

  • Security mechanisms and tools: These implement the security models and policies, such as encryption, authentication, authorization, auditing, or intrusion detection.

  • Security issues and challenges: These arise from the characteristics and requirements of different types of database systems, such as relational, distributed, object-oriented, or frame-based databases.

One of the authoritative books on database security is "Database Security" by Silvana Castano and others. This book provides a comprehensive account of security issues in various database models and protection measures, including those for new-generation systems. It also discusses the current status and prospects of database security research and practice. The book is divided into four parts:

  • Part I: Introduction to Database Security: This part provides an overview of the concepts and terminology of database security, as well as the motivation and objectives of database protection.

  • Part II: Security Issues in Database Models: This part examines the security aspects of different database models, such as relational, hierarchical, network, entity-relationship, object-oriented, frame-based, deductive, temporal, spatial, multimedia, or active databases.

  • Part III: Protection Techniques for Database Systems: This part presents the techniques and methods for implementing database security, such as encryption, authentication, authorization, auditing, integrity constraints, views, triggers, or inference control.

  • Part IV: Current Status and Future Directions of Database Security: This part reviews the state-of-the-art and future trends of database security research and practice, such as distributed and parallel database security, web database security, data warehousing and mining security, or mobile database security.

The book is intended for students, researchers, practitioners, and professionals who are interested in learning more about database security. It can be used as a textbook for advanced courses on database security or as a reference book for database system design and development. The book is also available in PDF format.
