Use Oracle Wallet to store repository (Registry/SS/EAS) credentials?

I'm running EPM 11.1.2.2 on AIX, Oracle repository, already installed and configured.

 

The security team would prefer to have the repository credentials stored in an Oracle wallet as a matter of policy.  I believe, from my limited research, that a JDBC driver can (theoretically) use wallet.  But has anyone done it in the context of the EPM services (i.e. Foundation, EAS)?

 

Obviously, the password is encrypted already, so I'm not sure that this really provides much of a real security benefit - except that I think that the Oracle password could be changed by updating the wallet without having to re-run the EPM configuration utility.

 

Any input gratefully received.  Thanks!
