Oracle Database Security: There are other ways than providing your username and password!
To logon to an Oracle database, the obvious way is to present a username and a password. However, there are alternatives. For example, you could logon by presenting a digital certificate instead of a password. Or what if you want to connect as another user, and you don’t know their password? Or you have scripts where you don’t want to embed the password? And perhaps you need to let your users or junior DBAs use shared accounts without compromising password security and audit. And what is the point of the CREATE USER … NO AUTHENTICATION command?
This webinar will describe using SSL certificate authentication, Proxy Authentication, the Secure External Password Store, local and remote Operating System Authentication, and schema only accounts. Authentication using LDAP directories such as MS-AD will be a later webinar.
Some of the content could be described as “advanced”. Basic DBA and/or developer skills will be needed, and familiarity with OS and database command line tools.
