I believe it is all in encrypted format in oracle database. for example, if you create an user in oracle database and the password of it will not be stored in plain text which can read by other users.  

or i got your question wrong ?


My question for internal purpose i am storing these data  in one table.

you can leave it to the oracle database right - why do you want to do the password management with encryption, etc ?

I suggest not encrypting passwords.  Hash them instead.  Then they cannot be decrypted.

Check out dbms_crypto.hash:

When a user logs in, hash whatever password they enter and compare with the stored hash value.

The other way to do it without the DBA being able to see the info is Database Vault but this requires additional licensing:
