Defending Enterprise Manager 12C
EM12c is a great tool for automating general administration to large estates and also for coordinating the different layers within an application architecture. It is also the natural tool to use for deploying secure configurations and reporting on their effectiveness, but centralizing all of this power in one place raises the obvious question of how to secure EM12c itself. That is the subject of this chapter. First we will look at securing availability and then network communications. We’ll also look at how users are affected and, finally, at the repository which represents the potential weak link.
