Abstract: - Database and database technologies form a core component of many computing systems and applications which allow data to be stored, retained and shared electronically. As the use of database systems and the amount of data contained in these systems grows continuously and exponentially, database security has become an issue of utmost importance due to an increase in the number of incidents reporting the unauthorized exposure to sensitive data. Hence, the databases should be protected in such a way as to restrict the unauthorized persons from accessing the sensitive contents of database as well as the overall database as a whole. Thus, this paper involves a survey discussing various techniques providing content as well as access security to databases.
