Implementing Share-Level Security: Establishing a Database Password

The simplest, yet least sophisticated, method of implementing security is to assign a password to the overall database. This means that every person who wants to gain access to the database must enter the same password. After a user gains access to the database, all the database's objects are available to that user. This type of security is referred to as share-level security.

Share-level security is the simplest and quickest security to set up. With almost no effort, the database and its objects are secured. This method of security is quite adequate for a small business where the users of the database want to ensure that no unauthorized people can obtain access to the data, but each person who does have access to the database has full access to all its objects.
