Re: Oracle security - Book recommendation

Best Oracle Security site: http://www.petefinnigan.com/ (Pete usually writes
in this list as well).

There it at least one book by him in Amazon: Oracle Security: Step-by-Step

I haven't personally read it, though. But after reading his white papers I'd
wager it's a good book.

If I ever get into DB security (seriously get into it, and not just
implement the usual corporate 'security' policies) it's the first book on my
list.
