Cross-database ownership chaining should be disabled

Explanation

Cross-database ownership chaining, also known as cross-database chaining, is a security feature of SQL Server that allows users of databases access to other databases besides the one they are currently using.

Possible Impact

Unintended access to sensitive data

Suggested Resolution

Disable cross database ownership chaining

Insecure Example

The following example will fail the google-sql-no-cross-db-ownership-chaining check.

resource "google_sql_database_instance" "db" {
	name             = "db"
	database_version = "SQLSERVER_2017_STANDARD"
	region           = "us-central1"
}
			

Secure Example

The following example will pass the google-sql-no-cross-db-ownership-chaining check.

resource "google_sql_database_instance" "db" {
	name             = "db"
	database_version = "SQLSERVER_2017_STANDARD"
	region           = "us-central1"
	settings {
	    database_flags {
		    name  = "cross db ownership chaining"
		    value = "off"
		}
	}
}
