Hmmm, I see the four entries per connection, but I don't see anything about Advanced Security in DBA_FEATURE_USAGE_STATISTICS or V_$OPTION (10.2.0.4).

Maybe this is evidence of one of those things that are there for Oracle internal usage but not generally seen unless you install it? I don't have an Advanced Security to check. Given the high visibility of security issues, I would hope the base product would be secure...
