Improving Security of Legacy Systems

9 January 2017

UKOUG Database & RAC Cloud, Infrastructure & Availability SIG Thursday 23rd February

Date: Thursday 23rd February 2017

Time: 11:45 - 12:30

Track: Database

Abstract: Most of us have to manage at least a few legacy systems.  These don't always conform to the latest (or any) security best practices.  Schema owners are used as logins for batch processes, passwords are simple and often hard-coded into scripts, powerful roles and privileges are distributed in a liberal fashion etc.  In the presentation I discuss the ways in which I developed a process to audit the security issues present in each of our legacy databases and the painful steps taken to try to remedy some of them.
