A basic security requirement is that you must know your users. You must identify them before you can determine their privileges and access rights, so that you can audit their actions on the data. This course covers creating and auditing database authenticated users and operating-system-authenticated users. It explores authenticating users with passwords or the operating system, and protecting passwords and database link passwords. In addition, this course describes strong authentication that uses certificates, Kerberos, and remote authentication dial-in service (RADIUS), as well as a setup for strong authentication that uses certificates, Kerberos, and key distribution center (KDC). How to implement the secure external password store is also covered.
