Some updated links on my Oracle security papers page

Thanks to Tom for emailing me and letting me know that I have some dead links on my Oracle security white papers page. He pointed out that some papers referenced on and is no longer valid but all of the papers are still available on I have updated these affected papers links and reposted the Oracle security papers page. The papers affected are:

Fine Grained Access Control

Autonomous Transactions

How to become another user in SQL*Plus

How to generate random numbers in PL/SQL

How to store a password

These are all quite interesting papers and well worth a second visit even if you have previously read them.
