Many databases claim to be secure, but how do you know for sure?

Good news! Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition and Oracle Label Security 11g were recently awarded Common Criteria EAL4+ certification. Common Criteria evaluations involve formal rigorous analysis and testing to examine the security aspects of a product or system. Extensive testing activities involve a comprehensive and formally repeatable process, confirming that the security product functions as claimed by the manufacturer. Security weaknesses and potential vulnerabilities are specifically examined during wide-ranging evaluation and testing. The Oracle Database has gone through more than 20 independent evaluations over the years. You can see this most recent Common Criteria certification report and learn how Oracle is the leader in third-party security standard evaluations here.
