I've a question of Oracle Advanced Security. Docs show we can use LDAP on Windows 2000 to authenticate users connecting. We uses NT group to authenticate/restrict access to database normally.
Can I do similar thing in Oracle on Linux and Windows 2000 too. Our applications currently hosted on Windows 2000/IIS-5 and most of them are active server pages.
I want to know can we use NT username and password which user provides from the browser to control the access to the Oracle Database on Linux.
Please give me solution for this.

This process is possible only if you have Oracle 8i or higher. It doesn't work on the older versions. There is a new feature called Oracle Internet Directory which is a replacement of the names server.
You will find a configuration file named tnsnames.ora which is required for all client connections.
The Oracle Internet Directory is a full directory service and can also be used to give control to users to the database. You can set the usernames and passwords for your users and this will allow them to access the database.
The Oracle Internet Database is a platform independent feature so it will work with your platform too.
Please make sure that Oracle Internet Directory is connection to the Oracle Connection Manager.
Hope this information helps you.
