Oracle’s Original Unbreakable Paper

I know a lot of you have heard of, or know of, Oracle’s Unbreakable claims. I’m not going to get into the religious, technical or emotional claims around “Unbreakable”, but a few days ago I went to dig up the paper and couldn’t find it, so I searched the Web and sure enough, the paper is still up on Oracle’s Web site.


If you have not read the paper, you should. It’s old, but it's fascinating.

    Why is this worth reading?  I can’t get past the absurdity of the title.  They use the ‘u’ word and then almost immediately go on to try to assert their security credentials by confronting the silliness of using it.  But by the end of the document I don’t think I understand what the point of it is.

    In fact, I’m suspicious that this document wasn’t sincere in it’s intentions.  Larry Ellison kind of has a reputation for being a huge dick.  Did I just get trolled?

    I’ve never been so confused by a post by you, Michael.    What are you trying to draw attention to?

  2. I think it’s fascinating to look at others approach to security and how they define it. simple as that.

    ok.  I’m going to try rereading it and suspending my immediate revulsion to the use of the word unbreakable.  But you’re on notice!  Less obtuseness! 😀
