Fix Recommendation

Implement required cryptographic protections using cryptographic modules complying with applicable federal laws, Executive Orders, directives, policies, regulations, standards, and guidance.

Deploy Oracle 11.2.0.4, with the January 2014 CPU patch, or a later version. Configure cryptographic functions to use FIPS 140-2 compliant algorithms and hashing functions.

The strength requirements are dependent upon data classification.

For unclassified data, where cryptography is required:
AES 128 for encryption
SHA 256 for hashing

NSA has established the suite B encryption requirements for protecting National Security Systems (NSS) as follows:
AES 128 for Secret
AES 256 for Top Secret
SHA 256 for Secret
SHA 384 for Top Secret

National Security System is defined as:
(OMB Circular A-130) Any telecommunications or information system operated by the United States Government, the function, operation, or use of which (1) involves intelligence activities; (2) involves cryptologic activities related to national security; (3) involves command and control of military forces; (4) involves equipment that is an integral part of a weapon or weapons system; or (5) is critical to the direct fulfillment of military or intelligence missions, but excluding any system that is to be used for routine administrative and business applications (including payroll, finance, logistics, and personnel management applications).

If encryption is not required for the database, this is not a finding.

If the DBMS has not implemented federally required cryptographic protections for the level of classification of the data it contains, this is a finding.

Determine whether the Oracle DBMS software is at version 11.2.0.4 with the January 2014 CPU (or above). If it is not, this is a finding.
