The State of Database Security Research Before we can discuss the state of database security research, we should first define what we mean by the term. In general, when we use the phrase “database security research” we tend to mean research into specific, practical flaws in the security of database systems. We do not mean research into individual security incidents or discussions of marketing-led accreditation or certification efforts. We don’t even mean academic research into the underlying abstractions of database security, such as field-, row-, and object-level security, or encryption, or formal protocol security analysis — though the research we are talking about may certainly touch on those subjects.

Dan Farmer and Wietse Venema’s influential 1994 paper “Improving the Security of Your Site by Breaking into It” neatly makes the argument in favor of understanding attack techniques to better defend your network. This book is largely composed of a lot of very specific details about the security features and flaws in a number of databases, but you should notice common threads running through the text. We hope that by the end of the book you will have a much better understanding of how to attack the seven databases we address directly here, but also a deeper understanding of how to attack databases in general.
