Two Oracle Security Presentations

I came across a site yesterday called - (broken link) Authority Base because it threw up an Oracle security presentation. I am always on the look out for any information related to Oracle Security of course. I was actually looking for something related to OCI programming as I am doing some at the moment as a side project; more on that in the near future smile

The Authority Base site is an database blogging site run by David Yahalom and as he seems to be blogging about Oracle as well as SQL Server, MySQL, DB2 and LUW I have added his feed to my Oracle Blogs Aggregator.

He has two posts around Oracle security each with some presentation slides. The first is in a post titled - (broken link) Oracle Virtual Directory and it includes a presentation titled - (broken link) Oracle Virtual Directory - From theory to practice and beyond. The second blog post is called - (broken link) The Secure Oracle database - howto and this also includes a presentation titled - (broken link) The twenty-four/seven database - Oracle Database Security.

Whilst this presentation doesn't cover the usual ground that i would (i.e. auditing, internals,forensics,hacking.....) it covers the Oracle products intended to secure the database at a high level and does a good job of putting them all into the right perspective.

I have added his blog to my aggregator so we can keep an eye on new posts more easily.
