14 Securing Oracle BI Content and Data > Oracle BI and Database Vault

Oracle BI and Database Vault

This section explains how the concepts introduced in Chapters 4 through 7 can be applied to the concepts discussed in this and the previous chapter. Chapter 6 focused on creating a security policy around a Sales Management application. This included transactional, batch, and reporting use cases. In this section, we focus primarily on the reporting use case, as Oracle BI is a reporting tool. However, as Oracle BI can be placed on top of transactional or warehouse data models, the other use cases in Chapter 6 can also be useful for someone attempting to integrate Oracle BI and Database Vault (DBV).

Factors and Oracle BI

Recall from Chapter 4 that factors are discrete security-related attributes that resolve to a specific value. In Oracle BI, factors can be used in number of ways. They might be used directly as part of the Oracle BI authentication and authorization process or to simplify the definition of Oracle BI session variables.
