ABSTRACT

For the recent past, distributed databases have become an important area of information processing and now we can see that their importance is growing rapidly. In present scenario, distributed database management is a progressive approach for accomplish the data management requirements of various wide-spread organizations because it allows the database system to act conceptually as a centralized system, while physically mirroring the geographic distribution of organizations. It extends Information Technology’s (IT) existing capabilities. Although as more and more data on individuals and companies are placed in a distributed database system, interests are established to grow about just how safe a technique it is. In this paper, we examine existing security mechanisms and their inadequacies. We also report on our experience using several security engines in a distributed database system. And, this paper also discusses an overview of various technical drop holes and problems that must be overcome in developing general purpose distributed database systems, and surveys several current research & development efforts ended at overcoming these problems.

Keywords :Distributed Database System, Security issues, Security models, Authentication.
