We are in the process of laying out a baseline of what and how the databases 
and software should be set - as it pertains to security.
Of course this encompasses everything from file permissions to account locks, 
default passwords - and on and on as you might imagine.   I have already seen a 
22 page document listing.

Right away, I notice there are a couple items out of date, in this case 
pertaining to passwords on the listeners.   Or, pertaining to listeners again, 
creating separate listeners for everything on your server, from the agent to 
administration purposes.    Or 'locking' the oracle account --- etc....

What I would like from the list, if one is inclined to be so kind, is if there 
are any good 'tools' that anyone uses, that automates the process of 
checking/auditing security.     Also, any up to date documents on issues like, 
but not unlike, what I just brought up with the listeners.
