Password Storage as Environment Variable
From: bbradley () rmii com (Bill Bradley)

In an HP-UX/Oracle 7 configuration, where an authenticated userid is passed
from the operating system to Oracle as a valid authorized user, is there a
way to configure the handling of the password to prohibit going around the
UNIX password mechanism and going right into the database using a commonly
known userid?  Is a second password (used by Oracle) better stored as an
environment variable or a global variable?  Thanks
