Stairway to SQL Server Security Level 6: Execution Context and Code Signing

A fundamental way that SQL Server determines whether a principal has the permissions necessary to execute code is with its execution context rules. It’s all complicated by the possibility that a principal has permission to execute code but doesn’t have permission on the underlying objects accessed by the code, such as the data in a table. This stairway level will explore SQL Server’s execution context, ownership chains, and impersonation, as well as show you how you can control access to data via T-SQL code.  Read more...

This sounds a bit complicated, but by the end of this stairway level you’ll understand how SQL Server permissions work and how you can exert very granular control over object creation, data access, and other types of actions on database and server objects.  Read more...
