Information in this document applies to any platform.


This note explains how to configure Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for the mutual authentication between Oracle Audit Vault on the server side and each collection agent over HTTPS.

After you secure the Audit Vault Server and Audit Vault collection agent communication to use HTTPS, you must enable the browser to use HTTPS to access the Audit Vault Console. At this stage, HTTP will no longer be available for the browser user because the browser to the Audit Vault Console communication is also made secure.


Please make use of the latest patchset of Oracle Audit Vault

Also it is generally recommended to apply the latest available AV bundle, currently <patch 12703193>

emctl stop dbconsole
emctl start dbconsole
emctl status dbconsole
