SQL 2008 and HSM/EKM providers RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to locate a vendor who supplies a solution that integrates in the 2008 using the new mechanisms provided for by Microsoft, but have had no luck finding any.  Has any one heard of a company.  Thanks.

  • Hi John,

     

    Currently no vendors are shipping a EKM provider for SQL 2008.  Several companies are working on providers and a few of them are in the final stages of developement but they have asked us (Microsoft) not to pre announce who they are.

     

    Sorry there isn't anything in the market yet.  I expect this will change in the next couple of months.

  • The nCipher range from Thales supports SQL 08. It also supports Oracle 11g if you run both DB's.

  • Wrote a blog about transparent data encryption (TDE) and how it supports EKM/HSM.
