Dear Saint dws,

I am but a lowly monk and I am wondering if my particular
solution to this problem resembles any of those you have outlined.

Whenever I need to access a password in a script I pull the password
out of the database itself. This of course assumes the database
is itself secure. I use ssh (F-secure) to call a (bash/SQL*plus) script
that reside on the database server.
This script returns the passwords my scripts needs to use.

I guess what I am asking is, does my script constitute a middle-tier process
you mentioned in your post?

Please bestow some wisdom upon me :)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
