Access Controls


Access control list for each file or database

Access control in a database relates to a defined user and their authorization scheme. In Oracle, it is implemented using privileges and grants to individual users. Careful analysis must establish what users should have access to, what objects must be audited for accuracy, and what changes should be tracked. In Chapter 4, we discussed general Oracle security. In Chapter 10, we explained in detail how to verify existing privileges and track them for auditing purposes.

Another type of access control is machine-to-machine using the network. In Oracle, several methods can be used to control access among machines – such as Valid Node Checking, Connection Manager Node Checking, SSH Redirections, etc. All these have been discussed in Chapter 7 – Network Security.
