Is there a way to encrypt or password protect Oracle database files so that they can not be used in case they were copied to other servers? Thanks

Check out DBMS_CRYPTO and Transparent Data Encryption in 10g.


Besides internal encryption, you can consider an encrypted filesystem, that only the "oracle" user has access to.

I could suggest a few but you didn't list the host operating system.
