I'm worried about the security of Oracle Developer applications inside my organization. We hava a lot of systems developers using that tool. The question is, what can we do to prevent unauthorized access to certain forms? Our actual strategy is to define security in menus by database roles. Where can I find more information on security issues using Oracle Developer 2000?
Your best bet is to code security correctly in the database. This way, no matter what application was used to access the database, the data is still secure. One should not rely on the application for security. If a users fires up a different application, then the security mechanism is lost.
Oracle has some good information right in the documentation. And there is a good Web site devoted to Oracle security. You can find this Web site at the URL below:
