  • Question

  •  "Encrypt data without modifying applications, using Transparent Data Encryption"

    Is this new feature works automatically in slq 2008?

    Does that mean I don't need  to have SSL when the data transfered between clints and server?

    Thanks.

  •   SSL & Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) are very different; SSL is used to protect data in transit while TDE is a feature designed to protect data at rest.

      For detailed information please visit BOL:
    * Understanding Transparent Data Encryption (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb934049.aspx).
    * Encrypting Connections to SQL Server (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms189067.aspx) 

      I hope this information helps.
