Access DB through firewall
Posted on 2014-11-19
A system located in head office, this system consists of oracle database and oracle forms, there is some users on database are default users and their passwords cannot be changed.
This system is connected to branches; the local network is connected to a firewall which is connected to a router to the branches.
Now some employees on branches knows the password of the default users which has special permissions on database.
The question is : can we let the employees on branches open the oracle forms and connect to database and restrict them to a new user we create for them on DB and disallow them to access the data base using one of the default users using the firewall?
