    Hi Guys

    I am a newbie to the security issues with SQLServer connectivity. We are
    planning to provide a centralized database to all our clients, who will
    connect to it using our vb application on their machine. It is more like
    client-server model, where client and server are connected over internet.

    Is it safe to connect to the database like that? With http, we can use SSL
    to connect to the webserver for encrypting the data transfer to and fro the
    server. Can we do anything like that using ODBC avoiding the vulnerability
    of tracing and sniffing?

    Please point me to any articles or links over the net...

    Thanx alot
