After reading and somewhat understanding security components (principals, securables, and permissions, fixed roles, user-defined roles, etc.), I like to get good skill by practicing them.

Question: Where can I find typical scenario statement to apply in my SQL Server installation and test them to make sure I have done correctly?

for example:
- make user1 sys admin
- make user2 database owner
- make few other users and assign them different roles
- assign roles
- process how to test them.

I can make my own examples; but most likely they may not be as good as thoughtfully designed by an experienced SQL Server admin.

Big question, and quite possible too difficult to provide general advice.

Having said that, there are resources via MS Books online that can provide insights and tips such as checklists : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff848786(v=sql.105).aspx and Best Practices whitepaper : http://download.microsoft.com/download/8/F/A/8FABACD7-803E-40FC-ADF8-355E7D218F4C/SQL_Server_2012_Security_Best_Practice_Whitepaper_Apr2012.docx

For a more opinionated "guide" have a read of : http://www.mssqltips.com/sqlservertip/3159/sql-server-security-checklist/ it presents the most common issues as a "do this" type checklist. But before you actually do those things, make sure you understand the ramifications and your own environment...

Once you have gained a clearer list of items that may need more insights, then we will probably be in a better position to address more specific scenarios.

Happy reading :)
