Overview

Protect Your Mission-Critical Data with Tips and Tricks from an Oracle Security Insider

Oracle expert David Knox has written the most practical, up-to-date book on Oracle Database 10g security available. With an emphasis on real-world problems and detailed solutions, Effective Oracle Database 10g Security by Design provides all the information you need to develop and deploy secure database applications. The entire security cycle is covered—from identification and authentication to fine-grained access control and encryption to effective auditing techniques. The material is presented with comprehensive yet easy-to-understand examples that show how to use all the security technologies in a complementary way.

  • Exploit database views to provide row-level and column-level fine-grained access controls
  • Enforce need-to-know access and data privacy with Virtual Private Database and Oracle Label Security
  • Ensure user accountability with Oracle fine-grained Auditing
