Are you looking for something along the lines of Oracle Wallet/Oracle’s secure external password store?

    Hi marto,

    Are you aware of anything similar for non-Oracle DBs?

    Thanks!


    The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

      IIRC MySQL has a plugin to talk to the Oracle system linked above. Besides casual/hobby use I don't get a chance to dabble much with other databases. Our client work is almost totally Oracle based, with some SQLite stuff I've had to build, so unfortunately I don't have a sufficient exposure to other DBs, I'm sure the terminology to search for will be similar, minus the Oracle sales patter.
