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.

24240: Issued revoke certificate permissions with grant command

A certificate is a digitally signed security object that contains a public key and in some cases, a private key, of an SQL server. Event 24240 occurs when a command to revoke certificate permissions (including the privilege to assign permissions to other users) from a user has been issued. It is generated by the DATABASE_OBJECT_PERMISSION_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, name, and permission bitmask of the target object (in this case, the certificate).
