Understanding Oracle Label Security
This month we focused Oracle Label Security (OLS). Label Security is one of our oldest security features, originally introduced with Oracle 9.0. OLS is widely deployed in cases where fine-grained control of data access is required. Over the past few years, regulations like GDPR have driven increased interest in Label Security.

We covered the basics components of OLS, and then walk through a typical use case. We set up basic OLS policies that control data access based on our business rules and demonstrated end-to-end implementation using the policies.
