Pete Finnigan Oracle 11g Security presentation slides available

I talked yesterday at the UKOUG DBMS SIG in Chesford Grange (Le Meridien Warwick) which is very close to Warwick. The conference was very good in my opinion with lots of interaction and good discussion. I also particularly liked Julian's talk abotu investigating Oracle, very interesting particulary the hint at the special C SGA programs he uses to investigate the SGA. My own presentation was about Oracle 11g Security and whats new in 11g, whats worse, whats subtly changed and also particularly how Oracle have made great strides in improving the features to solve some of the key issues once and forall.

My paper has been added to my Oracle Security white papers page as two versions. Both are pdf and one is one slide per page and the other has 6 slides per page. The Oracle 11g Security paper is here (full, 1.2 Meg) and the Oracle 11g Security paper (6 slides per page - 240K) version is here.
