I started a thread on my Oracle security forum yesterday titled "valid listener passwords
". In this thread I was asking if anyone knew or rather could confirm the valid character set allowed for listener passwords. Of interest and worthy of discussion was the comments I made later in the thread that it is time the listener had some password management features or at least the equivalent of the failed login attempts parameter available in the database for users implemented in profiles. What do you think? - I think it (the listener) should have these features.
