Oracle Database Connections to Kerberos Servers Now Default to TCP

In previous releases, Oracle Database connections to Kerberos servers defaulted to start with User Datagram Protocol (UDP).

If you prefer the Oracle Database connections to start with UDP connections, then you can modify the Kerberos krb5.conf configuration file to start the connections using UDP.

This enhancement speeds the authentication process for environments that have many Kerberos Key Distribution Center (KDC) servers.
