    encryption method (password starts with 06)

    Artem S. Tsygankov

      Our Audit Company has given us a recommendation:

      "Old DB Link encrypted Passwords: The password of the Oracle databases links are encrypted using DES (password starts with 05). This encryption methord is known and users can decrypt the passwords using a simple SQL query. Please recreate the database links to use the new encryption method (password starts with 06)."

      What does it mean and how can we perform this recommendation?
