Oracle SSO tips

Expert Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonDecember 11, 2015

Question:  That is Oracle SSO?  Is it any different in functionality to other single password repository SSO software such as RACF?

Answer:  Oracle has had SSO functionality since the early 2000's for Oracle eBusiness Suite (formerly Oracle Applications), and related components, such as Discoverer, Portal, Oracle Database and OS sign-on.  The older SSO was replaced by a new Enterprise Single Sign-on (ESSO) in 2015.  The Enterprise SSO is a new way of single password management for Oracle database, Oracle applications (eBusiness suite), external applications and operating systems logins.

The ESSO package was purchased from Passlogix, is part of Oracle's Identity Management Suite (IMS).

Oracle SSO identity management now covers all areas of Oracle user security including regulatory compliance (HIPAA, GLB, SOX) and reduces management costs of providing a single source for user identity management, similar to the RACF single sign-on tool from the 20th century IBM mainframes.  By creating a single source for user log-in's, the end-user only has to remember a single password.
