2005 Presentations

Anatomy of a Database Attack (121Kb)
Presented by: Aaron Newman
Date: 08/19/2005
Abstract: Traditional perimeter network security is not sufficient to defend against dynamic threats to applications already residing on enterprise systems and accessible over the Internet. Web-accessed databases are especially susceptible, because of the appeal of their lucrative repositories of customer and sales data and because IP entry affords hackers a broader range of methods with which to invade and gain access to database information. In this presentation, the speaker will describe different methods used in invading enterprise database and propose essential steps that IT managers can take in securely installing and configuring databases against malicious breaches. The session provides guidelines and best practices on how businesses can secure databases against unauthorized access.

Performance Tuning Oracle 10g RAC on Linux (760Kb)
Presented by: Murali Vallath
Date: 08/19/2005
Abstract: Cache Fusion resolves the types of inter-instance contention that were once responsible for clustered database overhead; for example the read/write and write/write contention. Linux O/S gives Oracle a better control over the environment compared to other operating systems. While single instance tuning practices also apply to RAC, one would have to effectively size the buffer cache and shared pool, tune the shared disk subsystems with a clustered configuration in mind and ensure that the cluster interconnect is performing at the maximum efficiency.

By looking at the underlying Linux O/S, data dictionary views, the global cache management and Oracle's wait interface, this presentation will peak into the various aspects of performance tuning a RAC environment. With the introduction of services and workload management, new variables to tuning have been introduced in Oracle 10g. For example tuning components at the service level, identification of performance bottlenecks at the service level etc. Tuning the system by recording and analyzing statistic using various methods including the ORADIAG, OEM, ADDM (10g, AWR, STATSPACK etc under a clustered configuration will be discussed.

Tuning Oracle at the Block Level (1.55Mb)
Presented by: Rich Niemiec
Date: 08/19/2005
Abstract: This presentation is a look at Oracle moving at the block level. We'll look at how blocks move from disk to memory, how they become Current blocks, how they become Consistent Read (CR) versions and other interesting information. This presentation specifically covers dumping blocks of data, reading block dumps, the cache buffer operation, general block level concepts, the current & CR version of blocks, delayed block cleanout, the hot/cold side of the LRU and some useful scripts along the way.

What's New with Oracle Identity Management (456Kb)
Presented by: David Saslav
Date: 08/19/2005
Abstract: Oracle Identity Management includes a collection of components for managing user identities and controlling user access to applications. Oracle Application Server and Oracle Database have a unified framework for identity and access management that is used by applications throughout the Oracle enterprise.

This session provides an overview of new features and capabilities in Oracle Identity Management. These include support for heterogeneous application environments, advanced deployment topologies, expanded authentication modes, and multiple security enhancements. Attendees learn how and why to leverage these features in their Oracle deployments.

2003 Presentations

New Oracle 9i Database Triggers (941Kb)
Presented by: Joe Trezzo

Abstract: This presentation focuses on the new Database Triggers introduced in Oracle8i and expanded in Oracle9i. The 20+ new triggers add tremendous flexibility and functionality to Oracle systems. In addition to the introduction of these new triggers, system defined events were introduced. This presentation outlines each of these new triggers and defined events and provides examples of each that will allow developers and DBAs additional techniques for development and administration. Several examples are provided to exemplify the unbelieveable power of these triggers that most people do not know are there or do not understand the true potential of these.
