Case Sensitivity in Oracle Applications User Passwords

In previous releases of Oracle Applications, user passwords were treated as case
insensitive. Now, Oracle Applications user passwords can optionally be treated as case sensitive, depending on the mode you choose.

Case-sensitivity in passwords is controlled by the site-level profile option Signon
Password Case. This profile has two possible settings:

• Sensitive - Passwords are stored and compared as they are, with the password case

• Insensitive (or unset) - Passwords are treated as case insensitive. In Insensitive
mode, passwords are stored and compared in uppercase, similar to that in earlier
releases. The entered password and the decrypted password are converted to
uppercase prior to comparison.
