An exciting new feature of Oracle Database 18c is "Centrally Managed Users" (CMU). This, for the first time, allows for simple and complete user management integration with Active Directory (AD). No additional licenses required!
Previously, Oracle Enterprise User Security (EUS) was needed as an intermediate component bridging the Oracle Database to Active Directory. And while EUS is still present and does offer some additional features and benefits, it's no longer required for database-AD user integration and management.
This presentation details the advantages of using CMU over the previous technologies, covers the installation/set-up process, and gives practical examples and use cases for organizations to leverage and benefit from the simplified integration of database user management (authentication and authorization) with AD.
Objective 1: 1. Understand the business and security benefits of integrating Oracle Database authentication and authorization with Active Directory.
Objective 2: 2. Learn the technical implementation process including what changes are required to the Active Directory schema as well as how to provision in the Oracle Database.
