Part I. Pete Finnigan.
I'll save Pete the trouble of plugging his book (which
I would highly recommmend).

I'm glad that I picked up a copy early on.
It sometimes lacks practical methods in which to
implement the recommendations. Metalink has some docs

secured, you're largely wasting your time securing the
database. Check out the SANS site for papers and texts
regarding OS security.

Part II. Aaron Newman
Aaron recently presented at NYOUG (last week).
His presentation is not yet available up on the NYOUG
website ( but at least one older

His website is:
He is the co-author of "Oracle Security" under Oracle

that should get you started.
