openssl x509 \
-signkey private.key \
-in certificate.csr \
-req -days 365 -out certificate.crt
In the above command, we are generating the certificate i.e. certificate.crt with a private key private.key with validity for 365 days.
Note: Always keep the Existing private key safe and secure. Do not delete in case you want to renew the certificate.
Since this certificate will expire in 365 days we can always renew the certificate with the below command.
-key private.key \
-x509 -days 700 -out renewcertificate.crt
In the above command, we are using the same private new i.e. private.key for…
Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) in Microsoft SQL Server Databases allows you to protect sensitive data in tables by encrypting them when they are stored on media. The data is transparently decrypted for authorized users or applications when they access the data.
TDE fundamentally is full database-level encryption. Any data written into the database storage is automatically encrypted. SQL Backups are also automatically encrypted. Data in use is decrypted by TDE as they are read by a user or application and stored, in clear text, in memory. Data-in-flight is decrypted and the key is stored in memory.
Cell-Level Encryption is implemented…
