While searching for password encryption I came across these statements.
1.Password Encryption While Connecting. This protection is always in force, by default. Passwords are always automatically and transparently encrypted during network (client/server and server/server) connections, using a modified DES (Data Encryption Standard) or 3DES algorithm, before sending them across the network.

Please confirm whether by default oracle encrypts the password before sending it to the database across the network even when the clear text password is used for connecting from a jdbc client.

Thanks In Advance
