Thoughts On Dynamic Data Masking

John Martin on Dynamic Data Masking:

For the rest of this blog post, I will be working with the following scenario:

  • I have an SSRS Server, hosting a number of reports that display information about my SQL Server estate. From performance metrics through to details of failed jobs and poorly performing queries. I want to add an additional layer of security, restricting who can see the names of servers, databases, and other internal infrastructure information. Permission to view these reports will be granted to both support teams and business users, with the business users not being permitted to see the sensitive data.

John is much more optimistic about this feature than I am.
