I don't pretend to be a database security guru, but I have done a little work with some of them in the past. Oracle, Informix and Sybase all were working with the National Computer Security Center some number of years ago to develop "trusted" versions of their products. Oracle definitely produced a version and had it evaluated. I do not recall if the others did or not. They all have security features that can be used. I'm sure that all of them can be used insecurely as well. I don't think security would be your deciding feature as to which package to choose. If any of the other experts have additional views, hopefully they will post them.
