Oracle is the number one database engine in use today. The fact that it is the choice of military organizations and agencies around the world is part of the company’s legacy and is evident in the product. Oracle has more security-related functions, products, and tools than almost any other database engine. Unfortunately, the fact that these capabilities exist does not mean that they are used correctly or even used at all. In fact, most users are familiar with less than twenty percent of the security mechanisms within Oracle.
