SQL Server Login Database

SQL Server login database is a simple creadential which is used to access SQL Server.

What is credential?

Credentials are simply a username and a password that you provide your username and password when logging on to Windows or even your e-mail account. This username and password builds up the credentials.

There are four types of logins provided by SQL Server:

  • A login based on Windows credentials.
  • A login specific to SQL Server.
  • A login mapped to a certificate.
  • A login mapped to asymmetric key.

Logins based on Windows credentials facilitates you to log in to SQL Server using a Windows username and password. If you want to create your own credentials (username and password,) you can create a login specific to SQL Server.

To create, alter, or remove a SQL Server login, you can take one of two approaches:

  • Using SQL Server Management Studio.
