The SANS S.C.O.R.E. Oracle security checklist has been updated

The SANS Institute has a set of security checklists based around their S.C.O.R.E. initiative. These are a set of free checklists that are being developed by SANS where each document has a lead developer who is an expert in the particular area or particular software in respect to the security issues. These are a great resource for anyone wanting to secure a particular piece of software or application.

The Oracle checklist is based around the SANS Oracle security step-by-step guide and reflects the thinking and research of many Oracle experts who know how to secure Oracle databases. The document for Oracle has just been updated to version 2.0 to reflect the changes made in the newly released version of the step-by-step book. I was the author of the book and the S.C.O.R.E. document and I am also just been appointed as the lead developer / maintainer of the checklist by SANS.
