The aim of this research is to maintain the confidentiality and integrity of database by building a security application used for protecting sensitive information stored in a database from disclosure. The first layer in security application is based on a password-based system. The password serves to authenticate the ID of the user logging on to the system. In order to prevent passwords from offline dictionary attacks and specific account attacks, an encryption process is executed using Message Digest 5 (MD5) hashing and salt hashing algorithms for concealing passwords stored in a database. The salt hashing prevents duplicate passwords from being visible in the password file and increases the difficulty of offline dictionary attacks. If an adversary tries to retrieve the password system data, a different password will be generated which is completely different from the original one. For maintaining the integrity of data, an auditing mechanism is embedded into the password-based system for monitoring all transactions and operations inside the database.
