Biometric (fingerprint, retinal scan, etc.)  

An alternative to using token cards, etc. is using biometric authentication. Authentication is done using physical attributes such as retinal scans and fingerprints. It authenticates the person, not just the holder of an authentication token.

Caller-ID verification of remote location

In this security model, the remote user calls up the system from a known phone number as verified by the caller id service. This model falls in the telephone connectivity software setup, which is outside the Oracle database security framework.

Telephone callback for remote users

This is also outside the realm of the Oracle database security framework. After a user dials the number for remote connectivity, the number is confirmed by caller id service as that of a known caller. The call is then terminated and the system initiates the call to the remote number to establish the connection. This ensures security even if the remote user somehow masquerades the calling number.
