Set Up Oracle Listener Authentication

Create Oracle Listener records to connect to Oracle TNS Listeners in order to enumerate information about databases behind the Oracle Listeners.

When authentication to an Oracle Listener is successful and databases behind the Listener are discovered, the QID 19225 "Retrieved Oracle Database Name" is returned in the scan results. This is an information gathered check that lists the names of the databases discovered behind the Listener. This information is useful if you want to create Oracle authentication records on those databases and need the Oracle System IDs (SIDs).

Where do I see the list of databases?


Oracle Listener authentication is not supported for Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2) and later because the Oracle Listener password feature was deprecated.
