Chapter 12 HIPAA Compliance & Oracle Solutions


Unique individual identifier for each user

This essentially translates to the unique identifier for a user in the database. Even if an LDAP solution is used to authenticate users, the database must have the LDAP user identified. The simplest way to achieve this compliance is to create an individual user id for each named user. If that is not possible, then the next best alternative is to use Single Sign On (SSO) using LDAP and Oracle users identified Externally. If an application using a database table authenticates users rather than LDAP, then a method for secure application user authentication must be followed that is not easy to break and is immune to attacks such as SQL Injection. A mechanism to achieve this is described in Chapter 5.
