Can you give any pointers on how you would approach a software liscence audit of oracle RDBMS? And what would constitute a liscence breach/violation, how to enumerate liscence keys etc?

I'm not aware of any tools that will perform a license verification scan of your systems.

Oracle doesn't require a license key to download/install/use.  It is more or less the honor system and the threat of them knocking on your door asking to review your systems.

When you purchase Oracle you should have received at least one CSI (I think it stands for Customer Service Identifier but don't quote me on that one).  This will allow you to see what that license covers.  Then it is up to the DBAs/Compliance folks to make sure you are licensed.

Not all databases your shop may have will fall under CSI licensing.  For example:  A developer can have a stand-alone database and be covered under Oracle's Education/Development license so this database doesn't count under your CSI.
