Oracle AUTH_PASSWORD string

Hello gentlemen,

I am looking for pointers on information showing me how to decypher AUTH_PASSWORD strings, which look like some kind of hash to me. The rest of the traffic is clear text however, including the SQL queries and answers.

I captured a few megs of Oracle traffic and want to be able to show the customer the importance of encrypting Oracle traffic on their network.

Since i am new to pentesting Oracle databases and analyzing Oracle traffic, i guess some basic guide on Oracle dialog interpretatino would best fit the purpose.

Thanks in advance,
