Oracle Security Policy Development

PeteFinnigan.com Limited offer an Oracle security policy development service to clients and customers. Policies can take a number of forms and can span small areas (such as database authentication) or larger areas such as an Oracle database hardening guide. Policies can also take varied forms such as the more traditional documents, policies for commercial database security scanners or SQL and PL/SQL check scripts, or even custom development. PeteFinnigan.com Limited has experience in all of these areas.

There are many steps involved in securing an Oracle database and having a written policy or baseline standard for the Oracle database is an important part. For example, if a site has no apparent security for its Oracle databases a number of steps must be put into action. A security policy must exist that includes the Oracle database so that an audit can be performed to assess the current security posture of the database and also assess the databases compliance with the policy. A strategy phase must then ensue that is used to determine what to harden and when. The hardening phase should secure the database to a defined level. A final monitoring phase can then take place to ensure that the database stays within the defined security settings. The same audit results and correction strategy can then be used as a basis for securing all Oracle databases in an organisation.

The above text describes the ideal world. PeteFinnigan.com Limited's experience has been that some clients do have policies but they don't have enough depth, some have no policy at all. We have found that clients who have PeteFinnigan.com Limited perform a security audit of their database would like their internal policies updating and also in some cases writing. Also a lot of clients are interested to monitor their databases once hardened for compliance and also to use the baseline to scan other databases.
