security related tables/views in oracle RDBMS

I am trying to document some useful security related tables in Oracle RDBMS that would be of interest to auditors to create an account with read only access permissions to query those. Can you detail which are the main security related tables/views in oracle (so perhaps those with account information, permission information, physical file information (i.e. where is the database), etc.

Typically, auditors that I have run into need the information from these views:

DBA_USERS
DBA_TAB_PRIVS
DBA_SYS_PRIVS
DBA_ROLE_PRIVS


If you are looking for where files are located, that would be:

DBA_DATA_FILES
DBA_TEMP_FILES

Are the password hashes in dba_users ?

Which table stores details about password management policies? And how can you marry up which accounts are subject to which password policies?

Yes, the hashed passwords are in DBA_USERS.

The password policy is a function of the profile that the user is assigned to.  You should see that in DBA_USERS as well.  Then you need DBA_PROFILES to be able to see what the settings are.  If you have a password verification function, you are going to have to pull the code for that yourself from DBA_SOURCE, the name of the function should be in the profile.
