Done easily with ssh.

This can be setup to work with or without passwords.

That said, I don't understand the admins concern about knowing the Oracle user password.

If you can logon via sudo/ssh/whatever, or logon to the database directly as sysdba, it
doesn't really matter much if the DBA's know the password.
