From Oracle FAQ
VPD (Virtual Private Database) is also known as Fine Grained Access Control (FGAC) or Row-level Security (RLS). It provides added security capabilities to the Oracle database by masking data so that users only see their private information. Data for separate sites, departments and individuals can be stored together in a single database without the knowledge of the users.
