Secure Coding in PL/SQL

Continuing my job to post the slides from previous talks I did about Oracle Security I have today posted my MS PPT slides for a talk I did in 2020 at the UKOUG. The slides for this talk - Secure Coding in PL/SQL - have been posted to my site today and also the Oracle security white papers page has been updated to include this talk.

This talk is interesting for anyone who codes in PL/SQL. We look at common attacks and types of security issues in PL/SQL and do some demo hacks. We also discuss the creation of an Oracle secure coding standard for PL/SQL and how to implement this and how to make sure all staff work to it and check code against it. We cover some solutions for the common issues and also present some simple demos on how to look for security issues in your PL/SQL code.

This was a fun talk to give and included quite a few demos of hacks and fixes to common issues in PL/SQL. Please download the slides and have a look
