Chapter 4 General Oracle Security

the most dangerous periods for handling security.  This parameter limits the maximum time a session can stay connected without doing anything. By reducing the period of time an inactive session stays connected, the probability of that session being a victim of abuse is reduced.

The profile also has other parameters, but only these are relevant for security.

Based on our decision, we can create the profile to enforce it. Since we already have the profile, we will merely update it with the new parameters.

alter profile senior_claim_analyst limit
    Connect_time       180000
    Sessions_per_user  2
    Idle_time          1800       

Voila! You have immediately achieved a very important requirement of HIPAA, to limit user activity to discourage the malicious intruder.

We have seen three separate discussions on profile-based security – the password function, the password management guidelines, and the database usage. Let's put them together to see a complete profile definition.
