All About DB2 Security,
This review is from: Understanding DB2 9 Security (Hardcover)Understanding DB2 9 Security by Rebecca Bond, et al (IBM Press) offers nice, well-thought-out coverage of DB2 security for DB2 DBAs, developers, and really anyone in need of securing DB2 data. This book offers a nice comprehensive guide to securing DB2 particularly in terms of leveraging the powerful new security features of DB2 9. This book is well-organized and offers in-depth coverage of some perhaps-difficult DB2 security issues such as identification and authentication controls, label based access control (LBAC), encryption ("at rest" and "in flight"), auditing and intrusion detection, using SSH, and managing patches and fixes.
The book is written for users of DB2 on Linux, Unix, and Windows platforms, and not for the z/OS flavor of DB2. But since there are many similar issues, DB2 for z/OS admins will find much to interest them, too.
