This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

You can use Oracle Advanced Security. If you don't have the Enterprise Edition, then you could look at a VPN solution.

I'm not sure what you mean by "secure the communication using Programming".

It is an extra cost option. "Oracle Advanced Security provides transparent data encryption of data stored in the database, the encryption of disk-based backups of the database, and also network encryption for data traveling across the network between the database and client or mid-tier applications."… – Gary Mar 10 '10 at 22:33

stunnel is the way to go, if you dont have any other option.
