the ssis package - when we transfer to the dba, we keep the security on the package as 'do not store key/password' option. but there is a package we are working which involves more secure details and data (financial etc).. the dba has asked to provide proper security before putting in the network drive for them to pick up..

what security do you recommend? how would you do it if you were the programmer?

Depends on what restrictions your organization has.  Are you dealing with a bank (financial institution) then you may fall under SOXX (Sarbannes Oxley)..  If you are under healthcare, then HIPPA may come into place.  It really is dependent on what your organization's best practices are defined or setup.

I mean, you can Zip the file with WinZip or another compression program with AES 128 or 256 bit compression.
You can use IPSwitch's MoveIT which offers encryption
You can use PGP
There some mail vaults you can use as well

Create folder permission to those user or application user who will use the package. other than that user revoke permissions.

Hi,

There're different ways and levels of security,

The most common will be "EncryptSensitiveWithPassword" or "EncryptAllWithPassword " and you can supply the password in the sql agent job, dtutel or whenever your need to run it.

Also check that link and it'll give you more information

OK- so EncryptAllWithPassword seems like best option- we can just give the password to next person in line who needs to open and use the package/solution.

if we need to schedule this job everyday (with the EncryptAllWithPassword protection) is there going to be a problem?

Nope, no problem whatever.

If the package encryption level is EncryptSensitiveWithPassword or EncryptAllWithPassword, use the Decrypt option to provide the password. If you do not inlude a password, dtexec will prompt you for the password.

When you schedule the job, click on "COMMAND LINE", then select "edit the command line manually"

then add /decrypt password a

all the options are discussed here
