oracle read only unrestricted account

We need to create a read only account for auditing purposes to an oracle database. The user needs full access to everything, but only at read only level. They have select any table, but claim that still doesn't allow them to have full access to everything. Is there any other roles/privs that could be assigned so they can do there checks without running the risk of changing data?

The online docs are always the place to start:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E18283_01/network.112/e16543/authorization.htm

System privileges that provide access to objects in other schemas do not give other users access to objects in the SYS schema. For example, the SELECT ANY TABLE privilege allows users to access views and tables in other schemas, but does not enable them to select dictionary objects (base tables of dynamic performance views, regular views, packages, and synonyms).


Additionally, you can grant the SELECT ANY DICTIONARY system privilege to users who require access to tables created in the SYS schema. This system privilege allows query access to any object in the SYS schema, including tables created in that schema. It must be granted individually to each user requiring the privilege

Caution:
You should grant these roles and the SELECT ANY DICTIONARY system privilege with extreme care, because the integrity of your system can be compromised by their misuse.

semi-encrypted source code.

I say semi-encrypted because I've heard that it was finally cracked and the code could be decrypted.

It is a way to 'hide' your pl/sql code.

wrap is an OS executable that will create a file that can be loaded in the database.

The online docs...  always a great place to start.
