David Knox on secure application roles

I came across an article on DBAZine a few days ago and made a note to talk about it here. It looks like it was added earlier this year. The paper is titled "Managing Privileges with Secure Application Roles" and is an excellent introduction to this technique. The paper includes some good examples and covers the subject very well. David is the author of Effective Oracle Database 10g Security by Design, which is also an excellent book. I have been re-reading this book recently myself.
