Oracle Listener Security: Before 10g but not in 10g.

Did you thing about listener security from Unauthorized access from remote site ?



We can protect our oracle listener through password to prevent Unauthorized access.



There is three way to set listener password.

1. Manually (UNENCRYPTED FORMAT)

2. LSNRCTL tools (ENCRYPTED FORMAT)

3. OEM (Oracle Enterprise Manager)



Reference: http://www.petefinnigan.com/ramblings/set_listener_password.htm


Above procedure is useful only for prior 10g release becuase now in 10g and later listener less password is more secure than listener password.



below is some references there discuss security experts about their views
