Secure zones allow you to create one or more exclusive database hierarchies, called zones, within a single Teradata Database system. Access to the data in each zone and the database administration is handled separately from the Teradata Database system and from other zones. Secure zones are useful in situations where the access to data must be tightly controlled and restricted. You can also use secure zones to support some regulatory compliance requirements for the separation of data access from database administration duties.
For more information, see Security Administration.
You can use Teradata Studio to administer secure zones, including creating and dropping zones, and managing zone and guest users.
Secure zones are supported on Teradata Database 15.10 or later.
