Oracle 10g Security Benefits of Centralized Credential
The process of centralizing management makes the
administration of users, credentials, and roles more efficient,
rapidly granting or revoking a user’s privileges on all applications
and databases across the enterprise. This allows one-stop shopping
for granting and revoking enterprise-wide user privileges. This is a
big step toward minimizing the risk of users retaining unintended
privileges after they have been transferred, demoted, or fired.
Centralizing management also makes it possible
to centralize your organization’s security expertise. This allows
specialized, security-aware administrators to manage all aspects of
enterprise user security, including directory security, user roles
and privileges, and database access.
In the traditional model, DBAs are typically
responsible for everything on the databases they manage, including
security. Unfortunately, security often took a back seat to the
other responsibilities of the DBA.
