9 Database Security

This chapter describes integrations that support database security. Topics include:

Note:

DB aliases are not supported.

9.1 Oracle Database Net Services LDAP Naming

To manage large networking environments, administrators must be able to easily access a centralized repository to specify and modify the network configuration. To support this requirement, the Oracle Net Services configuration can be stored in an LDAP-compliant directory server.

Supporting LDAP-compliant directory servers provides the enterprise with a vehicle for centrally managing and configuring a distributed Oracle network. The directory can act as a central repository of information about database network components, user and corporate policies, and user authentication and security, thus replacing localized client-side and server-side configuration files.

Table 9-1 shows the supported integrations:

9.2 Oracle Database Enterprise User Security with LDAP

Enterprise User Security (EUS), a feature of Oracle Database Enterprise Edition, leverages Oracle Directory Services (ODS) to centrally manage database users and role memberships in an enterprise LDAP directory. This provides a way to address the security and management problems posed by maintaining database users and privileges in individual databases.

Table 9-2 shows the supported integrations:
