Hi friends,
Recently, I am doing research on the Oracle database security. But I almost could not find the information about the payload of several types of TNS protocol packets.If anybody has any information in this regard ,lease provide some information for the payload of ABORT packet, REDIRECT packet, ACK packet and CONTROL packet.
Thanks in advance for your reply?

Of course, for security reasons, the protocol Oracle uses, SQL*Net, is not public and so there are no available information.

When you say "packet" I think you mean "datagram". Are you talking about establishing a session, OSI layer 5? SQL*Net is really layer 7 application layer, far above that.

Yes, I'm talking about SQL*Net, 7 application layer. I want to analysis this protocol. Do you have any information about this? Thanks in advance.

As I said, it is not public and so there are no information.
Why do you want this? What is your actual purpose? What problem are you trying to solve?

THe datagrams you mentioned (ACK and so on) are nothing to do with layer 7. They are TCP, lower down the model.
