MS SQL Server Auditing Tool

Databases are critical to enterprises because they store confidential data. Hence it becomes important to monitor database logs. But manually auditing them is a herculean task because of the enormous amount of log data generated. ManageEngine's EventLog Analyzer is a comprehensive log management tool that makes it easy for you to monitor all database activities, audit user accesses, track database server account changes, and ensure integrity of confidential data stored, especially in your MS SQL server database.

24096: Issued an access asymmetric key command

In Public Key Cryptography (PKI), a public key and private key are created. The private key is kept a secret, whereas the public key can be distributed to others. Since these two keys are different, they are asymmetric. Event 24096 occurs when a command to access the asymmetric key of a database in an SQL server has been issued. It is generated by the DATABASE_OBJECT_CHANGE_GROUP action group. Important information can be derived from this event including the:

  • Date and time at which the event occurred.
  • Session identifier of the event.
  • Privileged user who performed the action.
  • Server and database associated with the event.
  • ID and name of the target object (in this case, the asymmetric key).
