and a server running windows server 2003 with active directory installed.

how do i implement authentication with the active directory on the oracle database?

thanks in advance,

Is it also posible without extra software? i have an oracle database 10g with advanced security.
Short answer: not very easily.  While you can configure oracle to do the ldap side of things, you need to kerberize oracle which can be very tricky.
I don't have a "recipe" for that I'm afraid and it's probably a whole lot easier to buy the supported product.
