The Firebird server program allows you to create, host and connect a database located on a network or a client computer. It comes with a Gsec command-line management tool. The Gsec utility gives the database administrators the ability to change a password of the database system. The Firebird Sysdba (system database administrator) account is created automatically during the installation procedure. The default password for the Sysdba account is "masterkey." You need to use Gsec user option in order to change Sysdba's password in the Firebird server program.
