ISO/IEC 15408 is an international standard for objectively evaluating security functionalities implemented in IT products. HiRDB, which has obtained this certification, allows you to use a database system that provides superior security.

Tampering prevention functionality

The tampering prevention functionality enables you to prohibit all users, including the database manager and table owners, from deleting or updating data in specified tables to protect the data from being tampered. This functionality enables you to only permit the addition of data in the specified tables to protect important data from human errors or unauthorized modifications. This function is effective for managing important data such as electronic application forms and electronic medical charts.

Audit accountability functionality

The audit accountability functionality records the authentication of HiRDB connections and the history of accesses to a specific database resource as an audit log.
For example, malicious data manipulation by impersonators, such as the downloading of confidential data at night or the tampering of business transaction data, can be easily detected and tracked. This prevents malicious access to important data and enhances the system security.
