Security is an ongoing concern in the IT world. It's important to prove that reasonable precautions have been taken to secure data against potential attackers.
Encryption is a common way to do that, resulting in a proliferation of encryption keys, wallets, Java keystores, certificates and so on. To manage this multitude, Oracle Key Vault (OKV) provides a central software appliance. You can check YouTube for videos about which problems are being solved with this appliance.
In the Training On Demand course Using Oracle Key Vault, you'll dive into all the "How to" questions.
• Install and configure the central OKV software.
• Enroll database servers as "endpoints."
• Upload encryption keys for long-term retention.
• Rotate keys.
• Download keys.
• Use the direct connection between OKV and an Oracle Database 12c for TDE master keys.
• Back-up and restore OKV.
You learn this, and more, with the separation of administrative duties in place. Furthermore, you can provide positive proof of your adherence to security requirements with predefined reports and an automatic audit trail.
