Provides an introduction to securing an Oracle database using the default security features, such as how to secure the database installation and configuration or manage encryption. It includes beginning level tutorials for creating secure application roles, Oracle Database Vault policies, Oracle Virtual Private Database policies, Oracle Data Redaction policies, Oracle Label Security policies, and unified auditing policies.
Provides a graphical user interface (RASADM) that security administrators and developers using Real Application Security can use to develop end-to-end security for mid-tier applications. The RASADM application allows users to develop declarative data security policies to enforce access control requirements at the database layer to protect data at both the row and column levels. This approach allows developers to control application user access to data in Oracle database throughout all components of an Oracle enterprise in a common manner.
Describes how to implement Real Application Security on the database. Real Application Security is a new feature in Oracle Database 12c. Real Application Security is a database authorization model that enables end-to-end security for multitier applications. It provides an integrated solution to securing the database and application user communities. Also, it advances the security architecture of Oracle Database to meet existing and emerging demands of applications developed for the Internet.
