Improve Security and Operational Efficiency with Oracle Key Vault 12.2 Bundle Patch 10


Oracle Key Vault 12.2 BP 10 introduces server certificate rotation

The Database Security Development and Product Management teams are happy to announce Oracle Key Vault 12.2 bundle patch 10. This new release update brings increased efficiency and improved security to your organization.
With this patch, Oracle introduces the ability to rotate OKV server certificates (that are used to authenticate the OKV client to the OKV server) without any downtime on the database side. Certificates in OKV expire after 700 days; this new functionality simplifies and automates the certificate rotation process to ensure certificates are always valid. In the past, this required manually re-enrolling all endpoints which necessitated re-installation of the OKV client and a database restart.
With OKV 12.2 bundle patch 10, this rotation process is done with two mouse clicks, thereby eliminating the need to manually re-enroll all endpoints. This means you increase your database availability, through timely certificate rotation, without having to incur downtime and extra, unnecessary labor.                                                                                                 
A new server certificate has been created and is ready for deployment

To upgrade existing OKV 12.2 installations, download patch number 29758216 from support.oracle.com. If you do not already have OKV, we recommend a fresh install of OKV 18 by going to edelivery.oracle.com
