German translation of Firebird security article

There's an article on the Firebird Documentation web-page about Firebird File and Metadata Security. Since this is an interesting topic to our customers, I took the time to translate it to German.


The article describes the fundamental problems in securing network connections. One of the biggest problem is key management. Since the Firebird server is usually controlled by and installed at the client's site, you don't have any control over it. So, theoretically, someone could always build his own Firebird server to spy on the password. But that's only one of the problems discussed.


Many thanks to Geoff Worboys, the author of the original article, and Paul Vinkenoog for publishing it on the official web-site.
