|PDF · Mobi · ePub|
Oracle Database Vault enables you to secure business data in ways that were not possible before. Database Vault uses a multifactored and multilayered approach to implementing database security.
This chapter provides an overview of the Database Vault installation process. This chapter includes the following sections:
Database Vault can be installed as an option to the following:
Oracle9i Database release 2 (22.214.171.124) single instance installation
Oracle9i Database release 2 (126.96.36.199) with Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC)
Database Vault prompts for two accounts that you can create during installation. These are the Database Vault Owner (or Administrator) and the Database Vault Account Manager accounts. You must supply an account name and password for the Database Vault Owner during installation. Creating a Database Vault Account Manager is optional.
The password must include at least one alphabet, one digit, and one nonalphanumeric character (symbol).
The password cannot be the same as the account name.
The password cannot contain any consecutive repeating characters.
The Database Vault Account Manager is granted the
DV_ACCTMGR role. This account is used to manage database user accounts. The Database Vault Account Manager is created to facilitate separation of duties. If you do not opt to create the Database Vault Account Manager account, then the
DV_ACCTMGR role is granted to the Database Vault Owner account by default.
Note:If you opt to create a Database Vault Account Manager account, then you must not use the same user name that is used for the Database Vault Owner account.
Oracle Database Vault installs a baseline database auditing policy. This policy covers the access control configuration information stored in Database Vault database tables, information stored in Oracle Catalog (rollback segments, tablespaces, and so on), the use of system privileges, and Oracle Label Security configuration.
