As an Oracle DBA, I need to create and rotate secure user passwords on multiple database instances. My customer requires SSO / common access card (CAC) authentication for most all other access. The only reference I find in the Forum archives alleges that one could use the smart card, a username "EXTERNAL", and a null password. Life was simpler then, because that approach fails now.
However, a certain tool that comes bundled with Oracle does permit this. One has to create the GUI account with regular credentials, after which the authentication method can be toggled from password to external, successfully.
I'm asking whether TOAD for Oracle has a similar solution. TIA.
