Installing Oracle AVDF (Oracle Database Firewall) 12.2.0.0.0

Installation media of Oracle Database Firewall 12.2.0.0.0 is an ISO. It is directly installed on VirtualMachine or Physical Machine.

Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall (Database Firewall) provides the first line of defense for databases and consolidates audit data from databases, operating systems, and directories. A highly accurate SQL grammar-based engine monitors and blocks unauthorized SQL traffic before it reaches the database. Database activity data from the network is combined with detailed audit data for easy compliance reporting and alerting. With Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall, auditing and monitoring controls can be easily tailored to meet enterprise security requirements.

Before you install your oracle database firewall you have to install oracle audit vault. my previous topic is here

System Requirements:

Memory Requirements:

I will install AVDF in Oracle VirtualBox.
Each x86 64-bit server must have at least 4 GB of RAM, however, Oracle recommends 8 GB of RAM for production environments.

Each x86 64-bit server must have a single hard drive with a minimum of:

  • 220 GB disk space for the Audit Vault Server
  • 150 GB disk space for the Database Firewall

Network Interface Cards
Oracle recommends the following number of network interface cards (NICs) for each x86 64-bit server on which you install the following components:

  • 1 NIC for the Audit Vault Server
  • At least 1 NIC for a Database Firewall operating as a proxy
  • At least 2 NICs for a Database Firewall in DAM Mode (monitoring only)
  • At least 3 NICs for a Database Firewall in DPE Mode (monitoring and blocking. If you install the Database Firewall with fewer than 3 NICs, then you must add more NICs to make the Database Firewall DPE mode possible.

 

Installation:

1.  Now we create a VM name is ‘oracleFWoracle-database-firewall-installation1

2.   Select Memory size minimum ‘40956 MB’fw2

3. Create new virtual hard diskfw3

4. Select ‘Dynamically allocated’ and Split into files of less than 2 GBfw4

5. Determine file location and size that must be minimum 120GB. Then ‘Create’ Button.fw5

6. After creating a virtual machine, select preference then selects Audit vault ISO in the storage section.fw6

7. We will create three network adaptor, 2 bridge networks and 1 internal network

fw7

8. Start VM, you will see formatting file system.

fw8

9. Now you insert  installation passphrase, this passphrase will be used next time during configuration.

fw9

10. Select Management Interface then set your IP Address, subnet mask and gateway which will be used for Admin console.

fw10

11. Oracle database firewall successfully installation complete.fw11

12. Browse oracle audit vault and database firewall with management IP. We have required installation passphrase.

fw12

13. Set FWADMIN for web management console, OS root and Support user password.

fw13

14. See diagnostic report.

fw14

15. Change hostname of Oracle database firewall.fw15

16. Enable SSH Access.
