Is it possible to fully audit Oracle Databases without Oracle's audit tools? At least on 10g and above, many of the configuration files that could be reveiwed and audited for content and permissions no longer exist or are not used. Init.ora, sqlnet.ora are no longer used, and I suspect I will find others as I proceed. Has Oracle become the new IBM of account control? I've some Oracle experience with older version, and I can't find ways to pull this info. Our DBA can only give me Oracle Enterprise Manager screen shots but can't tell me a $V_ view or even whick files to query any of this info from, including the permissions for the options since there is no longer a file that contains the parameters. Any suggestions? Has Oracle locked us into finding more money we don't have for hidden cost?  I'm beginning to see some of the same issues with finding standards for their Enterprise Linux.  It's not really Linux anymore.
