Great paper on Oracle Applications 11i password weaknesses and decryption

January 10th, 2007 by Pete

Steve Kost and a few others posted about this a few weeks ago. Steve has today released a very nice paper titled "Oracle Applications 11i password decryption". This paper is to Steve's usual excellent standards and well worth reading.
