if we are talking about security at the configuration level,
would the 'security related' subset in sp_configure have all
the related information? or are there parameters/values to
be found elsewhere?

appreciate the feedback.

The configuration paramters are the ones that are directly
security-related, but security is a much bigger topic than just a few
parameters.
For example, you can enable auditing ( a config param plus some setup
steps), but how you set up you auditing configuraion and how you analyse
the collected info is what makes it work (or not). Same for column
encryption.
Same for the classic grant/revoke permission settings and use of roles
and groups: this is the cornerstone of security, but there no config
parameters involved at all.
You'll need to dig through the manuals to get a good understanding of
the issues involved...

HTH,

Rob V.

What kind of security questions do you have?
Are you worried about login security or host security?
Dop you know about passwords on the backups?
