RE: Creating a checklist for SQL Server 2000

Yes, you are on the right track, where possible use Windows and not SQL
security for access control. MS is expecting everyone to authenticate via
the OS and is not updating these functions in SQL. In addition, for good
segregation of duties you want the SQL logs directed to the OS logs.
However the audit function is SQL and Windows related and the removal of
unnecessary services are SQL specific.

Subject: Creating a checklist for SQL Server 2000

Hi all,

I have been asked to get a checklist for SQL server 2000. I have found
material at the following locations; http://www.nsa.gov/snac/db/mssql_2k.pdf
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa302337.aspx
http://www.sans.org/reading_room/whitepapers/application/1273.php?portal=332

I find that SQL server security is highly integrated with the operating
system so a separate SQL server 2000 only checklist is almost meaningless.
Am I on the right track? The problem is that the client wants to see a
"checklist" and consequently so does my boss.
So, are there any checklists out there or do I have to carry out some kind
of rephrasing exercise on material from the above links?

Pranav
