OOW 2014: Advanced Security from Todd Bottger
Another really impressive and useful session. There’s a bunch of new features from Oracle Advanced Security team. Just a quick summary:
New product Key Vault allows to use single vault (store) for all security keys (not just TDE, but Java key stores, etc)
- TDE is fully integrated with Key Vault, but Key Vault should be licensed separately
- TDE is integrated with hardware security chips for Oracle’s server stack
- ACFS can be encrypted by TDE as well, no more questions from auditors why reports output not encrypted
A really useful 12c new feature – Data Redaction is backported to 22.214.171.124. Currently you do not need to re-write your apps code to display the Social Security Number as xxx-xx-1234. It will be transparently “redacted”
Data Redaction is in process of certification for E-Business Suite and Peoplesoft. Not certified yet!
Our team is working currently on multiple TDE/ASO projects and we’ll notify our customers about deep technical details for ASO new features.
