Exadata Storage Server Security Configuration

The grid disks on the Exadata Storage Servers are the logical entities that will be used by ASM and the database to store database objects. Using the security features that are built into the Exadata Storage Server, you can configure permissions and set access controls on a grid disk and thereby authorize it to be accessed by a specific database or ASM cluster. This feature is useful in a consolidation environment with multiple databases deployed on the Exadata Database Machine, requiring you to control access to grid disks to a database or set of databases.

Exadata Security can be configured using one of the following modes:

Image Open security In open security (or no security) mode, no access controls are set on the grid disks. Open security is useful when you are running development or test databases on the Exadata Database Machine and do not require stringent security requirements, or when you are running a production database and have secured access to the Database Machine by securing the network and the operating system. This is the default security mode, and out of the box, this is the mode that gets configured during the default setup of the Database Machine.
