HOWTO Secure and Audit Oracle 10g & 11g: Account Security (Complimentary Chapter Download)

Cover

SQL injection, Zeus botnets, insider threats and new data protection regulations require tighter controls to secure high-value databases.

Account security is one of the fundamental building blocks in ensuring a secure Oracle environment. Weak and default passwords are often seen as the #1 reason for database breaches-and many breaches occur because of configuration errors in creating database accounts.

Authored by database security expert and IBM/Guardium CTO, Ron Ben Natan, Ph.D., “HOWTO Secure and Audit Oracle 10g and 11g” (CRC Press, 2009) is the definitive 454-page guide for security pros, DBAs, enterprise architects and audit/compliance managers.
