Oracle e-Business Suite and security

I am interested in finding out how the Oracle e-Business Suite implements the following security mechanisms: roles, privileges, authentication and authorization.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "implements". Certainly EBS uses roles and database privileges for authorization. Obviously, any user that logs in to EBS is authenticated. I believe that EBS creates database user accounts for each user and that each user authenticates to the database directly (i.e. it isn't "application" authentication, but database authentication).
