Continuous Availability and Extreme Scalability with Oracle Key Vault

Guest Author

Taylor Lewis, Product Marketing Manager

Oracle is proud to announce the general availability (GA) release of Oracle Key Vault 18. Oracle Key Vault enables organizations to quickly deploy encryption and other security solutions by centrally managing encryption keys, Oracle Wallets, Java Keystores, and credential files.

Oracle Key Vault 18 introduces new multi-master clustering functionality, providing unprecedented improvements in the availability and scalability of key management operations, while significantly reducing the operational burden. Organizations can now group up to 16 nodes to form a multi-master cluster that can be deployed across geographically distributed data centers.

Databases can connect to any node in the Oracle Key Vault cluster to get encryption keys. Any updates to keys or changes to authorization rules are quickly replicated to all other Oracle Key Vault nodes. If the Oracle Key Vault connection fails or an Oracle Key Vault node goes down for any reason, the database servers transparently failover to the nearby active Oracle Key Vault nodes.

Oracle Key Vault provides key management for Oracle Database 11g Release 2 and later releases, including Oracle Database 19c, and is the only enterprise-grade key management solution tightly integrated with Oracle databases including support for Oracle Transparent Data Encryption (TDE).
