Though Data pump has introduced from Oracle 10g onwards, 10g data pump itself is in binary format, so reading it like traditional dump like cat dumpfile|string args may not work..

However over the time,Oracle has come up with masking feature from 11 onwards, there are parameters introduced in data pump export(encryption,data_map)

Remap_data is also a good feature introduced in 11g to mask the data columns where in you can use your own logic while mapping

Check out the article on tim halls site for illustration of the parameter here

The simple answer is: Oracle does not provide a way to do what you asked for.  So, you need to use something like what Geert or Mike suggested: good security and/or controls in the operating system; use a file utility program like zip or a backup program that allows you to add password-protection to a file, etc.

Sure, it does markgeer.. The 11g release parameter suggested in my comment does the same..

Maybe the encryption parameter does that.  I haven't tried that, or read about that one.  (No one has asked for that feature here.)

In order to use Oracle encryption functionality you need the Oracle Advanced Security Option license .
