Did You Know #2 – ASO

This time, about ASO or Advanced Security Option.Encrypting the network between the database client and server (network encryption) was always part of ASO (Advanced Security Option). This means that it was available only for customers with Oracle Enterprise Edition that purchased the Advanced Security Option.

Well, not anymore!

Since Oracle 11.2, network encryption (as well as strong authentication) is not part of ASO and is available for all Oracle editions.
