Do you really need ASO?

If you only use the Advanced Security Option for SSL, you may not need to pay for it !

License 11.2
When used with Oracle Real Application Clusters, Oracle Advanced Security SSL/TLS is included.

But also
License 11.1
Network encryption (native network encryption and SSL/TLS) and strong authentication services (Kerberos, PKI, and RADIUS) are no longer part of Oracle Advanced Security and are available in all licensed editions of all supported releases of the Oracle database.

If SSL/TLS is no longer part of Advanced Security, what is then Oracle Advanced Security SSL/TLS ?
