Hi,

I have these 2 statments:

1. Not recommended to use Operating System Authentication to authenticate DBAs in the database!!

2. Make sure to set REMOTE_LOGIN_PASWORD_FILE=NONE.
Setting this parameter to NONE causes Oracle to behave as if the password file does not exist. That is, no privileged connections are allowed over non-secure connections. NONE is the default value for this parameter.

But if OS Authentication is not recommended and Password file Authentication is not used: REMOTE_LOGIN_PASWORD_FILE=NONE

--[>] then what shall we use! What is then recommended??

Thank you for your help,

Patrick Tahiri.
