Introduction to OPAM

Oracle Privileged Account Manager (OPAM) is a secure password management solution designed to generate, provision, and manage access to passwords for privileged accounts like Linux/Unix "root" or Oracle database "SYS" accounts. It enables auditing and establishes accountability for users who normally share privileged account credentials, and additional user Session Management and Recording.

Important Features:
  • Rich set of target connectors for Information Technology (IT) resources such as operating systems (e.g., UNIX), database servers (e.g., Oracle Database, Microsoft SQL Server, or IBM DB2), user directories (e.g.,Oracle Directory Services or Microsoft Windows Active Directory Services), network devices (routers, load balancers, firewalls), and enterprise resource planning applications (e.g., human capital management). Privileged users include system, database, and network administrators, support personnel (e.g., help desk), as well as application owners.
  • Leverage Oracle Database Vault and Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) for additional security.
  • Metadata information and passwords managed by OPAM are encrypted and persisted in an Oracle Database.
