Oracle Database Enables PHP Applications Via Client Identifier Feature
An article by Chris Jones on Oracle.com talks about how php developers can use Oracle Database’s client identifier in PHP applications. The client identifier in OCI8 PHP-to-Oracle can assist with connections for auditing, monitoring Oracle database and profiling.
As an example each web page can connect to a database using the exact same database user PHPuser. It two programmers ‘Alison’ and ‘Chris’ are sharing a web site, the two usernames may be created as client identifiers. These can then be stored in the database.
Moving over to the database, auditing, and extracting the logged application ID, it is also possible to utilize the identifier to limit access through a Virtual Private Database on Oracle.
The article also reveals establishing client identifiers through the oci set client identifier. This can also be utilized in the older versions of OC18 driver as well. You can take a look at a sample application to get a better understanding of SQL in order to load databases and a login page. This will be used to submint data and to retrieve it.
When it comes to utilizing a client identifier in php for auditing, you can identify incorrect database modifications, examine suspicious details, and verify authorizing processes and access control processes. In addition, you can verify business compliance rules and collect information regarding database activities for utilization in planning for capacity and resource allocation.
In this way, Oracle’s auditing function is powerful. General activities may be audited like a SQL statement. Alternatively, fine grained activities like specific values positions or the kind of IP address that releases a request can also be identified.
