Pete Finnigan speaking about Oracle 11g Security tomorrow at UKOUG DBMS SIG

I will be off down to Chesford Grange (Le Meridien Warwick) tomorrow to speak at the UKOUG DBMS SIG with a paper titled - (broken link) Oracle11g Security Features that will overview the main new security features in Oracle 11g as well as look at some of the key security problems affecting Oracle databases and how 11g has made great progress to address some of these. I will also touch upon some of the things that haven't been documented but are still security improvements as well as show some detailed examples of some of the features such as password related issues, the new fine grained network controls for packages and more. I will post the slides up after the event on this site. If anyone is able to come down there tomorrow come and say hello!.
