If you know the key use DBMS_CRYPTO or DBMS_OBFUSCATION_TOOLKIT.
Other methods are used by intruders.
For Oracle passwords there are paid services that will decode every Oracle password.

SAURAVKUMAR58,
       Not to poach on a complete answer by schwertner, but I'd be interested to know the reason behind your question.  There are other tricks and methods for accomplishing some things that do not require decoding of passwords.

Good luck!

"DEcoding" would imply they were "ENcoded"  and how you do the decode would depend entirely on the encoding mechanism.  If they weren't encoded using any of the algorithms in DBMS_CRYPTO or DBMS_OBFUSCATION_TOOLKIT then those packages won't help you.

If you are referring to the Oracle user passwords found in dba_users you can not decode them.
The reason is, the are not encoded.  They are hashed which is not a reversible process.

However, that doesn't mean they can't be hacked.  If that is your intent, I won't tell you how to do so but, as mentioned above, there are services available already to hack simple passwords and even some complex ones.  There are free utilities that will do it relatively simple password hacks for you and very quickly too.

The simple answer: No.  There is no published PL\SQL code or procedure or function to decode the Oracle password.

Can you tell us the business problem you are trying to solve?  There may be a better or simpler way to solve the problem than by decoding or decrypting a password.

It depends.
I will prevent you to decode encoded data. This can harm your reputation and cause you
big troubles. A good way is to report the facts in written to your boss and to ask what to do.

It depends what and how is the data coded.
In the easiest way (Transperant Data Encryption) you can export the data (Data Pump, 10g and over) and in the export file they will be decrypted. If you are allowed to work as user SYS.
