KB-6881: How Is Direct Audit Video Data Stored In SQL To Prevent Unauthorized Viewing.

All versions of Centrify Direct Audit

Is the Direct Audit video data that is stored in an SQL Server database encrypted? What would prevent the video from being viewed should the database be compromised?

The video data, although not encrypted, is stored in a proprietary format in the database. It is spread across multiple tables and rows. The data "as-is" cannot be played by a video player. It needs significant processing before it can be turned into a video file.
