Maintaining a Secure Environment

Oracle hardware and software provide a number of security features controlling hardware and tracking assets.

Hardware Controls

Some Oracle systems can be set up to be turned on and off by software commands. In addition, the power distribution units (PDUs) for some system cabinets can be enabled and disabled remotely by software commands. Authorization for these commands is typically set up during system configuration and is usually limited to system administrators and service personnel. Refer to your system or cabinet documentation for further information.

Asset Tracking

Oracle serial numbers are embedded in firmware located on option cards and system mother boards. These serial numbers can be read through local area network connections for inventory tracking.

Wireless radio frequency identification (RFID) readers can further simplify asset tracking. An Oracle white paper, How to Track Your Oracle Sun System Assets by Using RFID is available at:
