Hello,
I access a URL through browser IE. Afterwards, the connected area is stored in Oracle. It is said that the data transmission is in unencrypted form. I was wondering on how can I verify if someone who is within the network and does not know the login / password to access the URL. Is there still a way for others to access the trasmitted data, just becase the sensitive information is being access unencrypted ?

Thank you

Run a network sniffer to capture the packets flowing from client to the DB server.

This "problem" has NOTHING to do with Oracle RDBMS.
