Hacking Exposé – Using SSL to Protect SQL Connections
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.
