Went with my gut feeling on this and got it right.
Great way to close the week.

Ah well, went with my gut feeling and got it wrong but that'll teach me to some research before guessing the answer to a question I don't know the answer to.

Checked BOL and could not see an abvious answer so went with a gut instinct that there should only be one. :-D

Seemed obvious to me there could only be one, given the syntax of the CREATE MASTER KEY statement doesn't provide a table parameter; how would the database determine which master key to use when encrypting and decrypting if there were more than one key? I suspect I found it obvious because I'm from a programming background, though...Lord knows there are plenty enough things that someone from a SQL background finds obvious which I really struggle with!

Thanks for the question. Thought it was a trick for a minute. Then went with the obvious (to me) answer of one. IF you think about it, since the master key is "used to protect the private keys of certificates and asymmetric keys that are present in the database", there really only should be one. Plus, and this may not be so obvious to nonnative speakers of English, the term "master" implies a unique thing.

Great question! I ended up going with what I thought the best answer was and got it right.



Everything is awesome!
