Sharing secrets for the effective creation of auditing mechanisms for Health/Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) compliant Oracle systems, this book demonstrates how the HIPAA framework provides complete security access and auditing for Oracle database information. Complete details for using Oracle auditing features, including auditing from Oracle redo logs, using system-level triggers, and using Oracle9i fine-grained auditing (FGA) for auditing of the retrieval of sensitive information, are provided. Examples from all areas of auditing are covered and include working scripts and code snippets. Also discussed are the use of the Oracle9i LogMiner to retrieve audits of database updates and how to implement all Oracle system-level triggers for auditing, including DDL triggers, server error triggers, and login and logoff triggers.
