Equip Yourself with Oracle Database 12c Security Training


By Diana Gray, Snr. Product Marketing Manager

With more than 500 new features, Oracle Database 12c is designed to give Oracle customers exactly what they’ve told us they need for cloud computing, big data, security and availability.

Why Oracle Database Security?

With Oracle, customers can deploy reliable data security solutions that require no changes to existing applications, saving time and money.  

From the outset, Oracle has delivered the industry's most advanced technology to safeguard data at the source - the database. Oracle provides a comprehensive portfolio of security solutions to ensure data privacy, protect against insider threats and enable regulatory compliance for both Oracle and non-Oracle databases.

Oracle's powerful preventative and detective security controls include database activity monitoring and blocking, privileged user and multi-factor access control, data classification and discovery, transparent data encryption, consolidated auditing and reporting, secure configuration management and data masking.

Enroll in Oracle Database 12c: Security Training

In this NEW Oracle Database 12c: Security training course, discover how you can use Oracle Database features to meet the security, privacy and compliance requirements of your organization as you learn to:

  • Configure strong authentication for database users using PKI and Kerberos.
  • Control data access using virtual private database and Oracle Label Security.
  • Analyze application privileges and reduce the attack surface using Oracle Database Vault Privilege Analysis.
  • Reduce risk of data exposure using Oracle Advanced Security Data Redaction, Transparent Data Encryption and Oracle Data Masking,
  • Audit activity inside the database using policy and condition based unified auditing.
  • Configure network encryption to protect information in transit.
  • Audit activity inside the database using policy and condition based unified auditing.
  • Protect against application bypass using Oracle Database Vault Realms.

Instructor Insight: Using the Container Database in Oracle Database 12c


The first time I examined the Oracle Database 12c architecture, I wasn’t quite sure what I thought about the Container Database (CDB). In the current release of the Oracle RDBMS, the administrator now has a choice of whether or not to employ a CDB.

Bundling Databases Inside One Container

In today’s IT industry, consolidation is a common challenge. With potentially hundreds of databases to manage and maintain, an administrator will require a great deal of time and resources to upgrade and patch software. Why not consider deploying a container database to streamline this activity? By “bundling” several databases together inside one container, in the form of a pluggable database, we can save on overhead process resources and CPU time. Furthermore, we can reduce the human effort required for periodically patching and maintaining the software.

Minimizing Storage

Most IT professionals understand the concept of storage, as in solid state or non-rotating. Let’s take one-to-many databases and “plug” them into ONE designated container database. We can minimize many redundant pieces that would otherwise require separate storage and architecture, as was the case in previous releases of the Oracle RDBMS. The data dictionary can be housed and shared in one CDB, with individual metadata content for each pluggable database. We also won’t need as many background processes either, thus reducing the overhead cost of the CPU resource.

Improve Security Levels within Each Pluggable Database 

We can now segregate the CDB-administrator role from that of the pluggable-database administrator as well, achieving improved security levels within each pluggable database and within the CDB. And if the administrator chooses to use the non-CDB architecture, everything is backwards compatible, too.

 The bottom line: it's a good idea to at least consider using a CDB.
