Thanks Neil, explicit examples would mean I don't lose anything in
transmission to the ORACLE DBAs.

Fred,

Encrypting Oracle databases with DP Oracle is accomplished in very much
the same fashion. The twist? In order to exploit the include.encrypt
statements you will have to rely on the 'format' statement in the RMAN
scripts that you use to backup your Oracle database. Using the 'format'
statement allows you to prepend/append characters (strings) to each backup
piece. For instance, you may have an RMAN script for each database, say
DB1 and DB2, then prepend these strings to each 'format' statement in your
RMAN script. Then you can use these identifiers in your include.encrypt
statements in your dsm.opt file.

I can give you explicit examples if you need them.

Thanks Del.  I suspected that is the way it works for SQL.  I can't
surmise
how to limit how much ORACLE is encrypted.
