We need to run an asp.net web app on one web server, but it needs to read / write data on a SQL Server database on another host over the Internet.
We can't setup a VPN connection between the two servers. We also can't use SQL Azure for legal reasons (we're outside of the USA).
Besides setting the SQL host's firewall to limit access to only the web server's IP, how can we ensure the connection to SQL Server will be secure? Is it good enough to just use SSL?
