Subject additional firebird security to marry a database to a server
Author garybenade

We are having problems with database theft, and restricting access to
server is out of the question. We removed all backup devices on the
but the database is usually under 1 GIG at client level and USB
sticks are perfect for the job.

Is there a way to "marry" a database to a server and make is
inaccesible on
another unless some kind of registration process is performed first?
I am
thinking along the lines of using a UDF that performs checks on
aspects of the server (name/hardware ID etc) and then creates and
stores a
key in the database that gets checked everytime a user logs on. I
can't find
any login triggers that would allow this, but I'm wondering if there
may be
another way to do this?

I suppose I could encrypt the data but I shudder to think of all the
implications that will have..

Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
