Alex Torin: "Several months ago I downloaded the trial versions of several Microsoft SQL administration tools that I was able to find using google. I had considerable trouble with most of them crashing... but using your product I was able to isolate and solve the problems I was having. I decided to add it to my toolkit and have recommended it to a few others".
Paolo Benjamin T. Briones: "I just downloaded the trial and its great! IMHO, its a lot better than the Enterprise Manager from SQL Server".

Asymmetric Key login options

Asymmetric Key logins were implemented in Microsoft SQL server 2005.


This step of the wizard allows you to specify Asymmetric Key login options according to your needs. The detailed description is given below.




Specify the name of the Asymmetric Keys login that is created.

Note: the name of the object must be unique among all the object names in the server. You can use any identifier that is allowed by Microsoft SQL server.



If checked, the login is enabled.



Define here the name of a credential to be mapped to the new SQL Server login. A credential is a record containing the authentication information required for connecting to a resource outside of SQL Server. The credential must already exist in the server.



Specify the default database to be assigned to the login. The default database is set to MASTER.



Specify the default language to be assigned to the login. The default language is set to the current default language of the server. If the default language of the server is changed in the future, the default language of the login will remain unchanged.


Asymmetric Key

Specify the name of an asymmetric key to be associated with this login. This key must already exist in the master database.
