Oracle Database Vault is also an option.  It's certified with the 
E-Business Suite.

Re: Hiding of sensitive information

Hi Jeffrey, we have a client that currently uses VPD to hide access to 
data in Apps 11i for businesses that have been divested and they seem very 
happy with the results.  It provides a solid workaround until the data is 
migrated/purged out of their existing applications environment.

Subject: Hiding of sensitive information

My question is how are people hiding sensitive information in a Production 
database.  For example, we are running Oracle Applications 11i and would 
like to protect some fields so that only a few people can see the column. 
In such an instance, would you setup a virtual private database with 
column level security or what?  Since this is a packaged application, 
there is no access to the code.
