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 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.
