Security

Security has never been more important as databases have become a target for gaining access to valuable information. Oracle Database has a wealth of security features spanning preventive, detective, and administrative controls.

Database Security

Solutions such as Oracle Advanced Security, Oracle Database Vault, Oracle Label Security, and Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall can be used to deploy an inside-out, defense-in-depth architecture to help address security requirements ranging from preventing database bypass to privileged user controls to detecting and preventing SQL injection attacks. Oracle Database security solutions help address privacy and compliance regulations as well as prevent and detect unauthorized access to sensitive data. To get started learning about how security works in Oracle Database, see Oracle Database 2 Day + Security Guide.

Provides an introduction to securing an Oracle database. In addition to describing how to manage security in a default Oracle database, this guide includes beginning level tutorials for Oracle Label Security and Oracle Database Vault.
