Connection String

This page is a stub. Please help us by expanding or merging it with applicable content

A Connection String is a string passed by an application for requesting information from a data source. The String will take parameters such as the Driver name (ODBC/PostgreSQL, etc), a Server name and a Database name (along with a UserID and Password, if required), to establish a connection to certain types of databases.

Connections Strings inherently pose a security concern, as login information stored in plaintext is often a part of the string. Additionally, malicious injection may be a concern if users are permitted to enter certain parameters themselves.
