Oracle Database Vault 10.2.0.3 Certified with Apps 12

I am very pleased to announce that Oracle Database Vault 10.2.0.3 is now certified with E-Business Suite Release 12 on Linux-x86 platforms. This certification provides an upgrade path for current Database Vault-enabled EBS 11i instances to R12.

What is Oracle Database Vault?

A key challenge for security administrators is protecting enterprise data from insider attacks.  Oracle Database Vault
is an optional database feature that can help you defend against that class of threats, as well as build internal controls to help meet regulatory requirements for privacy and segregation of duties.

Oracle Database Vault can prevent highly privileged users, including powerful application DBAs and others, from accessing sensitive applications and data in Oracle databases outside their authorized responsibilities. You can use customizable Realms and rules to ensure that users, even administrators, have access only to what they need to do their job.

For more details about the prepackaged Realms we've created for E-Business Suite environments, see:

Certified Platforms

  • Linux x86-32
[Editor Note:  Due to a couple of things that I can't discuss publicly here, it is likely that DB Vault + R12 certifications for additional operating system platforms may be based on Database Vault 10.2.0.4. If you're not running Linux and/or upgrading from Apps 11i with DB Vault 10.2.0.3 already enabled, you may wish to reflect on how this fits into your implementation and upgrade plans. More details will be forthcoming. You're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog for updates, which I'll post as soon as soon as they're available.]

  1. Oracle E-Business Suite Release Update Pack 12.0.4
