Mark Rittman talks about Fine Grained Access Control

I just saw a nice post on Mark Rittman's weblog about Fine Grained Access Control titled "Applying Fine Grained Access Control To Analytic Workspaces" that discusses using VPD (Virtual Private databases) within analytical workspaces. Mark found a good post on OTN that details how to use VPD in this situation. Mark has reproduced the relevant parts of the post from OTN OLAP forum in his post. This post includes some nice examples including even FGA at the end.

I also wrote a two part paper about row level security in Oracle for Security Focus some time back. There are links to parts 1 and 2 of this paper on my Oracle security white papers page.
