HIPAA is the sole focus; there is no mention of SO or GLB.
Arthur Luger
In this book the contents have been presented in a very logical manner - you would go from simple security concepts to larger and more complex issues.

SQL Injection and Application User models described in the book were exactly what we were missing and we got it in this.

I bought this book to learn more about Virtual Private Database which I am implementing now - and it was a pleasant surprise see that not only that but all other areas are detailed as well. The chapter on VPD goes much beyond the Oracle common references and explains concepts like application contexts, in such clarity and relative to to real life examples that the chapter alone may be worth the price of the book.
Other things that make the book must read - the material on listener security, a simple firewall settings, fine grained auditing, and the 10g features. SQL Injection and Application User models described in the book were exactly what we were missing and we got it in this.
Hmmm..why the large fonts?!!

Agreeing with other reviewers on the astounding attention to the details, the depth of coverage, and extremely useful examples, I would like to add another perspective: this book is also an excellent read for those IT Management types who wants to get familiar with the concepts but not get buried in the details. The book introduces the topics gradually, making it available for CIOs, Security Officers, IT Managers (who can stop reading before the detailed examples) and to Senior DBAs (who can but won't skip the introductory chapters because the text is so well written and so engaging). Excellent and comprehensive read for the entire spectrum of IT professionals! A must read for those in Healthcare or for any public corporation.

What makes a good book? Topic and coverage count less than half of it; the key is the presentation. In this book the contents have been presented in a very logical manner - you would go from simple security concepts to larger and more complex issues. The best parts are perhaps the neat summaries at the end of the chapters, a bulleted list of points covered.
The most valuable part of the book, in my opinion, is the practical advice it imparts in building an Oracle database with security in mind. Take for example the section on building a virtual private database where the database users are not relevant, such as in a web interface. The chapter explains not only how to do it, but comes complete with the code to implement in action! Just loved it!
Little snippets of information such as alter session privilege is not required for any session altering commands like sort area size, etc., are pure gems. Debunking these fallacies is nothing new in books of similar kind; but this book has more of these and also in a caterigical manner which makes it easy to comprehend. Other non- or little-documented tidbits like the way a listener password is set, are also very useful.
The chapter on Oracle 10g is good; but not useful at this time. Most likely the authors wanted to bullet-proof the book for the new version of Oracle. I had downloaded the chapter from OTN earlier.
My only complaint - the book is too thick to lie flat, required for a book of this nature, i.e. reference.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The title of this book is quite misleading. The title should stop with HIPAA. HIPAA is the sole focus; there is no mention of SO or GLB. True, the overall goals of SO and GLB are similar to those of HIPAA (control, accountability, confidentiality) but I would expect a book that has SO and GLB in the title to mention those laws and perhaps (as I was hoping) provide some specific insights. If you want to learn something about HIPAA, this is the book. If you want to learn something about SO or GLB, you have to learn it elsewhere and then apply the legalistic knowledge into this book on Oracle.

The second gripe is with the index. Personally, I don't have the time to read a book cover-to-cover. I need a competent index to be able to look up specifics. This index is woefully short (4 large type pages). Further, I sincerely believe the index is for some other version of the book or other book entirely. The page references do not match the pages. Hence index is useless.

I was in the process of returning this book (first time I would have done so) when I came over to the reviews and started reading them. My gripes are legitimate but I have decided to keep the book for its security aspects rather than its integration of HIPAA, SO or GLB requirements into Oracle security. After all, the Oracle Security Handbook (Theriault and Newman) is out of date.

I haven't finished reading my copy yet, but I had to chime in to concur with the previous reviews: this book is terribly well laid out. The writing is clear and descriptive, but almost as important, it's rather engaging. That helps when trying to dig to the bottom of these often daunting security concepts.
Another reviewer covered this, but I have to say that my favorite parts are also the chapter summaries. They do a great job of recapping the details that were covered. Having all that information covered in such depth is great, but I'd probably have forgotten each chapter's contents had there not been that nice, succinct conclusion at each one's end.
