Thanks all for your replies.
So to secure the connection between oracle server and PHP oci8 client, we have to modify the sqlnet.ora shipped with oracle product ,as suggested by christopher in his reply, and no API or interface is avaialble to do the same via PHP . In the same manual suggested by Chris, I found a link to secure oracle connection using SSL . ( http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B14117_01/network.101/b10772/asossl.htm#1006120).
