Articles in DOAG Red Stack Magazin

A while ago I wrote two articles for the DOAG Red Stack Magazin. In the meantime both articles have been published. For this reason I use the opportunity to make the PDF versions of the articles available on oradba.ch. The articles are written in German and available as Trivadis version as well Red Stack version. Although the articles versions differ only in the number of typos and layout.

None of the articles are currently available in english. On request I will write also articles about Oracle Unified Directory in English in the future. However, currently I still have a lot of ideas for blog posts about database security, enterprise user security and unified directory on my to-do list. And blog posts I usually write in english… 🙂

Stay tuned, I’ll definitely write more blog posts on Oracle Unified Directory 12 soon.

GDPR and Database Security Speeches

The new EU GDPR and Database Security in general keeps me busy. I’ve updated the list of speeches and events for the next couple of month. It’s an interesting mix between GDPR, Oracle Database Security and MS SQL Server 2016 security. Depending on the feedback of the Call For Papers for the DOAG Conference and the Oracle OpenWorld there will probably be more. But for now I’ll definitely give a full day training on Oracle Database 12c Security at the Education day on DOAG Conference.

    I present a lecture on Oracle Unified Directory on Docker at the DOAG SIG Security in Stuttgart. Slides and presentations will be in German. Short abstract on my presentations:

    Oracle Unified Directory ist eine All-in-One-Verzeichnislösung mit Speicher-, Proxy-, Synchronisations- und Virtualisierungsfunktionen. Je nachdem welche Deployment-Methode verwendet wird, lässt sich OUD einfach in einem Docker Container konfigurieren und betreiben. Im Rahmen dieses Vortrages werden Punkte rund um OUD on Docker besprochen.

    More Information on the Event including full agenda, registration etc is available on the DOAG web side DOAG SIG Events.
