Description

Security Basics - Passwords and the Oracle Database
Passwords are the most commonly used authentication tokens for the Oracle Database. This month we will focus on passwords, including how passwords are stored, how database clients use passwords to authenticate to the database, how passwords are controlled with database profiles, and what the different capabilities are in various database versions. If you are responsible for administering or securing an Oracle Database, this session is sure to have information you can use!

There are TWO identical sessions at 9:00 and 20:00 UTC - just pick the one that works best with your schedule. As always, we start with announcements, then move into a technical presentation and then open the lines for your questions related to database security. The sessions are recorded and the recordings are usually available a few days after the session is held.
