Project lockdown

I was looking for the project lockdown paper by Arup Nanda at the weekend to re-read this paper to see if is covered a specific issue i was interested in and when i went to the Oracle page i noticed that there is now a pdf version of the complete 4 part paper. This is called "Project lockdown - A phased approach to securing your database infrastructure". I am not certain that the pdf was there when i originally looked at Arups paper. i didnt write about it and I didnt have a copy downloaded so I suspect not. I also note that the pdf has some extras in it. There is an appendix that includes a brief security primer and also three useful checklists aimed at the first three phases of the project.

It is well worth a visit to look at the pdf to get the extras and to keep a complete copy of this paper locally for future reference. Excellent paper Arup!
