Data-driven distributed Java applications working with a SQL Server back end are subject to a range of known security threats including packet sniffing, credential theft, SQL injection, and DoS attacks. Application designers and administrators must carefully consider the security implications of each major architectural element, including the JDBC SQL Server database driver that mediates between the user application and the back-end database. Your JDBC SQL Server driver can strengthen overall application security or weaken it depending on the driver’s design and engineering.
