Chapter 11 - Oracle Database Security

Securing an Oracle database environment requires more than just issuing SQL grant and revoke statements. The information in this section is by no means intended to be a thorough discussion of securing an Oracle database installation. Rather, it is intended to provide readers with a few helpful hints and tips that may protect your environment from unwanted access.

If you need to tightly secure a particular database environment, search the Internet for information using the keywords "Oracle Security."   You will find dozens of websites that contain information on hacking and securing Oracle databases. Good sources of information are data security consultancy websites. These websites contain numerous presentations and documents on Oracle security issues.

Protecting Data Requires More than just Protecting the Production Database

If you remember anything from this discussion on Oracle security, make it the next sentence. Experienced hackers understand that they don’t have to hack into your production database to access your production data.
