SQL 2012 :: Importing Encrypted PROCS Into Database Projects

Jan 19, 2015

I have inherited a database and looking to upgrade it from 2008 to 2014. I have imported the database into db projects but it has flagged warning s straight away because one of the previous contractors has created a bunch of stored procs with encryption.

Encrypted Stored Procs

Sep 7, 2007

Hey yall

I ran into something interesting today and was wondering how one would do this. I have some 3rd party stored procs and one was kicking out a truncate error so I took it upon myself to investigate the stored proc that was kicking out this error. So when I tried viewing the sp, I received an error:*****Encrypted object is not transferable, and script could not be generated.***** and then it brings up a blank editing screen.

First I believe this was a custom error message as it just doesnt seem like the way SQL Server would have presented it.

So how would someone prohibit viewing of a stored proc like this?

SQL 2012 :: SSRS Using Encrypted Database?

Dec 10, 2014

I have an encrypted database in server A. The reporting service is running on server B. I deployed all my reports to Server B. When I run the reports, I got the following message:

The report server cannot decrypt the symmetric key that is used to access sensitive or encrypted data in a report server database.

I googled the problem, some said to backup the key, but when I opened the reporting service configuration tool to backup the encrypted, it said I needed to restore the key first. Some said I need to delete the key, but that defeated the purpose of an encrypted database.

SQL 2012 :: Decrypting Encrypted Fields From Another Database

May 5, 2015

I am executing a stored procedure in one database (Database1) that pulls data from another database (Database2) that is the back end for a third party application. Some of the fields in that other database are now encrypted. I need to decrypt those fields but since the query is running in a database other than where the data lives (which is also where the symmetric key + cert lives), I am getting the following error: "Cannot find the symmetric key" Below is an example of what I am running in the stored procedure:

FROM Database2.dbo.TABLE1

What do I need to add to Database1 so the stored procedure can decrypt the data it pulls from Database2?

Problem Restoring Database With Encrypted Columns To Different Database Or Server With Encrypted Columns.

Jan 23, 2006

I need to start encrypting several fields in a database and have been doing some testing with a test database first. I've run into problems when attempting to restore the database on either the same server (but different database) or to a separate server.

First, here's how i created the symmetric key and encrypted data in the original database:

create master key
encryption by password = 'testAppleA3';

create certificate test
with subject = 'test certificate',
EXPIRY_DATE = '1/1/2010';

create symmetric key sk_Test
with algorithm = triple_des
encryption by certificate test;

open symmetric key sk_Test decryption by certificate test;

insert into employees values (101,'Jane Doe',encryptbykey(key_guid('sk_Test'),'$200000'));
insert into employees values(102,'Bob Jones',encryptbykey(key_guid('sk_Test'),'$500000'));

select * from employees
--delete from employees
select id,name,cast(decryptbykey(salary) as varchar(10)) as salary from employees

close all symmetric keys

Next I backup up this test database and restore it to a new database on a different server (same issue if restore to different database but on same server).

Then if i attempt to open the key in the new database and decrypt:

open symmetric key sk_Test decryption by certificate test;

I get the error: An error occurred during decryption.

Ok, well not unexpected, so reading the forums, i try doing the below first in the new database:


Then I try opening the key again and get the error again:

An error occurred during decryption.

So then it occurs to me, maybe i need to drop and recreate it so i do

drop symmetric key sk_test


create symmetric key sk_Test
with algorithm = triple_des
encryption by certificate test;

and then try to open it.

Same error!

So then i decide, let's drop everything, the master key, the certificate and then symmetric key:

drop symmetric key sk_test
drop certificate test
drop master key

Then recreate the master key:

create master key
encryption by password = 'testAppleA3';

Restore the certificate from a backup i had made to a file:

FROM FILE = 'c:storedcertsencryptiontestcert'

Recreate the symmetric key again:

create symmetric key sk_Test
with algorithm = triple_des
encryption by certificate test;

And now open the key only to get the error:

Cannot decrypt or encrypt using the specified certificate, either because it has no private key or because the password provided for the private key is incorrect.

So what am I doing wrong here? In this scenario I would appear to have lost all access to decrypt the data in the database despite restoring from a backup which restored the symmetric key and certificate and i obviously know the password for the master key.

I also tried running the command


again but this does not resolve the issue.

SQL Server 2012 :: Encrypted Records In All Columns

Nov 6, 2014

I have idea on SMK, DMK and symmetric and asymmetric keys. I have also idea on TDE. But Is there any way to encrypt all the records of all the columns of a table in a database? actually I need to encrypt the database. Someone .... thinks that when someone will write select query he will get the encrypted records. As per as I am concerned it is not possible. I can encrypt the specific column using symmetric or other keys...

Is there any software or any tool which will provide encrypted records of database?

Can't Add Database To Projects

Sep 12, 2006


I have gone through the above and, while I can connect to the sql server and activate connections, I can not add a sql database to a project.

Open a project
Right click - add new item
Choose sql database


Add existing item
choose existing sql database

results in:

"Connections to SQL server files (*.mdf) require sql server express 2005 to function properly blah blah blah"

Like I said, I can connect to the DB through the server explorer and view table definitions and data. I just can't add one to a solution. I have reinstalled sqlexpress already and am trying to avoid having to reinstall visual studio.

SQL 2012 :: Delete Encrypted Key In SSRS But Now Report Cannot Connect To Datasource

I decided to delete the encryption key.After that when I go to the reporting page, the report cannot connect to the datasource.

An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted)

Cannot create a connection to data source 'xxxxx'. (rsErrorOpeningConnection)

For more information about this error navigate to the report server on the local server machine, or enable remote errors

What do I suppose to do?

SQL 2012 :: Enabling SSL Encrypted Connections Without Using Force Encryption Option

Apr 1, 2015

I have a customer who is looking to encrypt their applications connection to the back-end SQL server. I've gotten a valid certificate for the server from a trusted CA, and it's installed on the server (shows up in Personal certificates in the Certificate MMC when selecting the computer) and I can choose it in the drop down on the certificates tab of the SQL Network protocols properties in Configuration Manager.

Now, my question: If I select the certificate but do NOT enable the "Force Encryption" option, the client will be able to request encryption on their end, and the connection will then be encrypted. If the client (other applications) do NOT request encryption, they will still be able to connect, but their connection will be un-encrypted. URL....

Lastly, I could've swore I had found some information indicating that some methods of establishing a connection to SQL can fail when Force Encryption is enabled, as the method doesn't support SSL encryption.

How To Store An Encrypted Password Into A Sql Database?

Apr 20, 2005

Hi everyone,
I am currently reading ASP.NET unleashed and practising few examples.  The following code converts a user's text into a symmetric encryption:
'nd: define keys
Const DESKey As String = "ABCDEFGH"
Const DESIV As String = "HGFEDCBA"
'nd: convert string to byte array
Function convert2ByteArray(ByVal strInput As String) As Byte()
Dim intCounter As Integer
Dim arrChar As Char()
arrChar = strInput.ToCharArray
Dim arrByte(arrChar.Length - 1) As Byte
For intCounter = 0 To arrByte.Length - 1
arrByte(intCounter) = Convert.ToByte(arrChar(intCounter))
Return arrByte
End Function
Private Sub btnGo_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnGo.Click
Dim arrDESKey As Byte()
Dim arrDESIV As Byte()
Dim arrInput As Byte()
Dim objFileStream As FileStream
Dim objDES As DESCryptoServiceProvider
Dim objEncryptor As ICryptoTransform
Dim objCryptoStream As CryptoStream
'convert string to bytes
arrDESKey = convert2ByteArray(DESKey)
arrDESIV = convert2ByteArray(DESIV)
arrInput = convert2ByteArray(txtInput.Text)
objDES = New DESCryptoServiceProvider
'pass keys
objEncryptor = objDES.CreateEncryptor(arrDESKey, arrDESIV)
'create to file to save password
objFileStream = New FileStream(MapPath("secret.txt"), FileMode.Create, FileAccess.Write)
'pass in file and keys
objCryptoStream = New CryptoStream(objFileStream, objEncryptor, CryptoStreamMode.Write)
'pass in text
objCryptoStream.Write(arrInput, 0, arrInput.Length)
lblDone.Text = "Done!"
End Sub
It works fine.  But, how to i save this encrypted password into a database field instead of a writing it to a file?  Also, could some please tell me how to paste code into this forum?  I tried <code></code> tags but it did not work.
Many thanks,

Encrypted Database Transfer Problem

Apr 4, 2006


I have encrypted some columns of a table in a database. Following is the method which i applied for encryption.

I created a master key with a password and it is also encrypted by service master key.
Now i created a certificate without password, so it is only encrypted by master key of the database.
Now i created a symmetric key encrypted by the above certificate.
The data is encrypted by this symmetric key.

To decrypt data i use DecryptByKeyAutoCert.

On my server this encryption & decryption is working perfectly.

But when i take this database to another server, it is not working.

What is the solution for this, should i drop service master key to encrypt master key or is there any soln.

Thank you.

Pls give me soln. i am worried abt it.

SQL 2012 :: TDE Encrypted Databases On 2 Different Server To Be Restored On Single Dev Server

Apr 29, 2015

have a Prod Server A having TDE enabled on 2 of those databases. I have a Prod Server B having TDE enabled on 3 of those databases. Now I have to create a single Dev server Server C for all the above 5 databases residing on the two servers. So how can I restore all the 5 database backup files on server C.

Does it mean that I need to copy the certificates and Keys from both the Prod server to this Dev Box and then restore the backup files. Once done, I can enable the encryption ON on those 5 database on Dev box or is there any different approach.Also how will tempdb behave in this scenario.

SQL Server 2008 :: How To Check If The Database Itself Is Encrypted Or Only The Backups

Jul 9, 2015

I queried sys.databases in one of the sql server and found "is_encrypted" is "1" for four of the databases.

Does that mean that all those 4 DBs are encrypted ?

How to check if the database itself is encrypted or only the backups ?

Note :- I can see backups of key in a particular folder.

SQL Security :: Enable Encrypted Connections To Database Engine?

Nov 2, 2015

The option:

SQL Server Configuration Manager>SQL Server Network Configuration>Protocol for SQL_xxx (right click)>Properties, we can see two Tabs:

Tab 1: Flags
Tab 2: Certificate

If I set the value of Hide Instance= Yes, does "Force Enctyption", need to be set YES as well? 

Or Force Enctyption has to be enabled in order to hide instance?

What is the recommend settings?

Secure A Single SQL Server Database + Make Float Fields Encrypted

Mar 21, 2007

Hi all,

I am developing an application for a big office which uses SQL Server 2000.
Apart from my database, on that server, there are two databases by other companies.
The administrator also has access to server but the client only wants him to backup the database.

I have two questions:

1) First of all (if it is possible) I would like to protect my own database from the other companies.

I don't want them to:

see the data in the tables (around 20 tables)
make changes to the stored procedures (more than 100 stored procedures)
be able to backup the database

2) The client will save sensitive data to the database (mainly currency amounts, salaries etc) which he wants to keep hidden.
I am using float type for these fields and I would like to make the data encrypted. I could do it for nvarchar fields but changing these float to nvarchar would be time consuming.

Thanks for your patience reading this!

Would really appreciate some help on any of these

SQL 2012 :: Importing Data And Indexing

Jul 22, 2014

I have a CSV File, I am importing this into SQL Server using SSIS package through Flat File source Task.

Few Points about data & its handling
1) inside the Procedure they are dropping the index, then populating the table, then again creating the same index.
2) Data is huge in figure (say, in millions)

My doubt:
which is the best way to import the data
1) Just inserting the data without dropping the Index
2) Drop index, populate table, re-create index (the way they do right now)

SQL Server Admin 2014 :: Cannot Decrypt Encrypted Columns From Database Backup On Local Machine

Jun 29, 2015

I've a SQL server 2014 running on one of our server. We're in the process of implementing security steps for our databases. I've encrypted a column in one of the table in the database on the server. The issue is when I restore the backup on my local SQL server and run a query to decrypt the column data it gives me null values. On the other end when I decrypt the column data on the main server it works fine. I found a thread on this forum which states to do the following when restoring the encrypted database on different server.

USE [master];

select File_Name
, CONVERT(nvarchar,DECRYPTBYKEY(File_Name))
from [test].[dbo].[Orders_Customer]

I tried doing above still no luck.

Stored Procs: Is There A Way To Divide Up (or Namespace) Groups Of Stored Procs

Jan 15, 2008

Is there a way to namespace groups of stored procs to reduce confusion when using them?

For C# you can have ProjectName.ProjectSection.Classname when naming a class. I am just wondering if there is a way to do the same with SQL stored procs. I know Oracle has packages and the name of the package provides a namespace for all of the stored procs inside it.

Importing MDF Database

Mar 30, 2004

As a newbie, I'm having problems importing a copy of my SQLServer2k development database from my laptop (via a CD), to my production SQL Server2k database.

I've tried the DTS Import/Export wizard & also the Copy wizard, but can't seem to see the dialog that prompts & identifies the source path & filename.

I've tried setting up an ODBC DSN for the database, but get the same problem.

Coming from an Access background, I've been used to the copying of *.mdb files, and half expected that level of simplicity with SQLS2K - but clearly, I'm wrong and am missing something, which the on-line help isn't able to clarify for me...

Can anyone please give me any pointers for me to get a copy of my development database along with its stored procedures, from my laptop (not networked), to my desktop server. Both use SQLS2k.

Thanks in advance, Alex
