Restricting database connections using the CONNECT_PROC database configuration parameter in DB2 for Linux, Unix, and Windows

System administrators are responsible for, among other things, protecting a database against unauthorized access
or misuse by authorized database users (for example, inappropriate access to sensitive information within a database).
A common requirement to mitigate such risks is ensuring that users are allowed to connect to the database only from
a list of trusted hosts or IP addresses that are known to be secure. This article gives a practical example of how
such a requirement can be put in practice by making use of the CONNECT_PROC database configuration parameter of
IBM DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows.
