Project Server security, encryption, ... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everybody!

    My internship is about an implementation of project server (2010 or 2013, that's not clear at the moment).

    A “problem” is, that the project server will contain secret dates of milestones and the company defines strict rules about storing secret information.

    Has anyone  experience in this topic (encryption and so on) and can give some tips?

    Thank you very much!

    Greetings

  • If company policy dictates that secret information must be encypted or similar, then project server needs to be on a secure or secret network.

    Project server out-of-box doesn't have any functionality for secret data.   It's possbily some of secret fields could be protected, if custom software intercepted events, but this would be very complex and expensive.

  • Hi there,

    You could look at SQL TDE: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb934049.aspx

    Although this could have a performance impact.

    Thanks
