Good reference. But even Tom Kyte's followup does not shedding any light on how to keep the wallet on a diff. server.
I think the point was "don't do that" :) That is, moving the wallet on a different server doesn't add much to security - if my guess is correct, breaking the columns is several orders of magnitude easier than breaking the wallet. So an attacker would not even bother to examine the wallet; why breaking Fort Knox to retrieve the keys of a small home vault ? Hammer the vault instead. But I hope that some security expert will chime in ... -- http://www.freelists.org/webpage/oracle-l
