Oracle Database Vault is now certified with SAP

I just read that SAP is now certified with Oracle Database Vault. This is an important step to increase the security of SAP systems. Well done Oracle. Let’s see if SAP customers will use this functionality.

The Oracle whitepaper „Best Practices Installing and Configuring Oracle Database Vault in an SAP Environment“ decribes the step-by-step installation of database vault in SAP.

The following screenshot from the document (July-2009) contains an information disclosure bug for the Oracle SID (reported by me, fixed by Oracle with CPU July 2007). It seems that the installation of the security component was done with unpatched security software 😉
