Changes in Oracle Database Release 18c Version 18.1
The following are changes in Oracle Database Enterprise User Security Administrator's Guide for Oracle Database release 18c, version 18.1.
Oracle Database Enterprise User Security release 18c, version 18.1 includes the following new features:
Enterprise User Security Manager (EUSM)
eusmcommand-line tool can be used to manage the Enterprise User Security (EUS) Configuration in Oracle Internet Directory (OID) directory server.
See Enterprise User Security Manager (EUSM) Command Reference for more information about this feature.
Centrally Managed Users for Microsoft Active Directory.
This integration is the preferred option from a complexity, cost, maintenance, and development perspective for new projects that do not require some of the more complex Enterprise User Security features like trusted database links.
See Configuring Authentication and Configuring Authorization in Oracle Database Security Guide for more information about using centrally managed users to directly authenticate and authorize users with Microsoft Active Directory.
See Integrating Enterprise User Security with Microsoft Active Directory for other options to authenticate and authorize users with Microsoft Active Directory.
Support is added for Enterprise User Security authentication with 12C verifier generated from Oracle Internet Directory
The 12C verifier generated from Oracle Internet Directory uses a new ZT tag,
MR-SHA512, for multi-round Password-Based Key Derivation Function (PBKDF2) based keyed-hash message authentication code (HMAC) with SHA512 cryptographic hash functions to provide a strong password verifier. This support is added in OID bundle patch 188.8.131.52.0.
See Oracle® Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Internet Directory for more information.
For pluggable databases, you are no longer restricted to the default wallet location. The
WALLET_LOCATIONcan point to a directory location of your choice.
See Wallet Location for Pluggable Databases for more information.
A new initialization parameter,
WALLET_ROOT, is introduced to specify the path to a directory containing the wallet location.
See Wallet Root for Pluggable Databases for more information.
