Directory Services Integration With Database Enterprise User Security

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Enterprise User Security (EUS), an Oracle Database Enterprise Edition feature, leverages the Oracle Directory Services, and gives one the ability to centrally manage database users and role memberships in an LDAP directory. Enterprise User Security reduces administration cost, increases security, and improves compliance through centralized database user account management, centralized provisioning and de-provisioning of database users, centralized password management and self-service password reset, and centralized management of authorizations using global database roles. A default Enterprise User Security deployment requires Oracle Internet Directory (OID), a scalable, secure, and standards-based directory, while Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) enables enterprises to implement EUS leveraging their existing directory infrastructure, e.g., Active Directory or SunOne Directory, so as to lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
