Basic Security Principles

There are four basic security principles: access, authentication, authorization, and accounting.


Use physical and software controls to protect your hardware or data from intrusion.


Set up all authentication features such as a password system in your platform operating systems to verify that users are who they say they are.

Authentication provides varying degrees of security through measures such as badges and passwords. For example, ensure that personnel use employee badges properly to enter a computer room.


Authorization allows company personnel to work only with hardware and software that they are trained and qualified to use.

For example, set up a system of Read/Write/Execute permissions to control user access to commands, disk space, devices, and applications.


Customer IT personnel can use Oracle software and hardware features to monitor login activity and maintain hardware inventories.
