Teradata Security Patching


Teradata Security Patching

I am doing a security review of some Teradata databases, and I am having some trouble finding information on patching. My Teradata knowledge is limited, but I know that one of the first things I do when I look at a database is the patch level (i.e. quarterly Critical Patch Updates for Oracle or Microsoft Security Bullitins for SQL Server patch info). Is there a similar resource for Teradata to see what security patches are available to compare to the version/release of the Teradata DB I am reviewing.

I was surprised to see that the "Teradata RDBMS Security Administration" document did not mention patching at all.

Re: Teradata Security Patching

You will want to talk to your Teradata CSR regarding the details of your current maintenance patch release for the RDBMS and for the operating system of the Teradata system itself. I'm not aware of any of that information being available publicly on a website.
