The Sybase SQL Server is a client-server relational database management system (DBMS) designed to conform to the requirements of the U. S. National Institute of Standards and Technology for certification against the FIPS 127-2 standard (ANSI SQL 92).
The SQL Server includes security mechanisms for user identification and authentication, configurable auditing, discretionary access control (DAC), groups, and roles; and integrity features such as triggers, stored procedures, and declarative and procedural referential integrity.
These products provide security within the database application itself. Trusted DBMSs are evaluated in conjunction with specific operating systems platforms (not as add-on products). The evaluation rating is valid only for the evaluated configuration.
