I’ll be speaking at German Oracle User Group (DOAG) Conference 2014 this week. The database related presentation with following title will be held in English:
Best practices and live demo on remote database connection techniques including remote database connection setup, troubleshooting and undocumented tricks. Together with the audience we bypass a firewall, establish SSH RSA server authentication and receive DB access without an obvious user. Connect without passwords to any server this is our final goal!
Timelines and location: 19.11.2014 12:00, room Seoul
During my presentation in the interesting manner of a live demo I’ll try to explore how a trivial topic of Oracle database connection can have so many problematic areas in terms of security, troubleshooting and user usability.

..Oh yes, one more thing I forgot. In scope of the conference I was interviewed with a few questions by a DOAG representative. It was great to see myself with that interview in the DOAG Conference brochure together with the other big names of Oracle community. You can read it here in German: Die Datenbank hacken
The German Oracle User Group (DOAG) came together this week in Nuremberg at the annual Oracle users’ conference. It was three days of pure knowledge, the most current information on using Oracle solutions, and the exchange of hands-on experience. In addition to about 450 keynote sessions, technical lectures and presentations, the exhibition offered a comprehensive overview of the services and products on the market from about 60+ companies.
Being a part of the event I had also the great opportunity to expand my network and benefit from the know-how of the Oracle community. This time DOAG could attract a lot of the Oracle technology gurus from all over the world including members of Swiss and Austrian Oracle User Groups and the Oracle experts from Oak Table Community. All of this complemented with modern facility of the Nuremberg Convention Center, great organization and nice networking events. Read more »
Last week on Tuesday, 17th of September on the occasion of 25 years anniversary of German Oracle User Group (DOAG), a DOAG Regional meetings around entire Germany took place. I visited the event in the Oracle Office in Nuremberg. It started with live broadcasting of DOAG chairman greeting Dr. Dietmar Neugebauer in all the German regions and DOAG groups at 17:00. Then it continued with a live presentation of Dierk Lenz on a subject Is it worth the migration from Oracle 5 to 12c. With one DOAG quiz the jointed part finished. After that I gave a presentation in Nuremberg on the subject Oracle database High Availability strategy, architecture and solutions. Since I architect, build and administer Oracle database environments for more a decade also doing service management I could manage to combine a 25 page presentation from my previous reports and experience. I must admit that when I started preparing this topic I realized it’s so extensive and complex that I decided starting slowly describing the things that any DBA or Infrastructure architect should understand before building a high available database system in my next few articles on my DBMS Blog.
After my presentation we had an interesting discussion on the same topic. I also took a few pictures including a funny fridge in form of Oracle Exadata machine in Oracle office. I share them in this post as well as my presentation: Read more »
