If you are using os authenticated account for the only reason they can connect like "connect /" and you are on 10g OCI client I would recommend you to review Oracle Secure External Password Store feature. It's covered by EE license. By implementing it you can hide password management from the application completely and provide functionality to connect to the database by issuing "connect /@<YOUR_DB>" syntax. Here you can find more details about it.
