SOUG Day

Mid June I give a lecture on Oracle 18c New Security Features at the SOUG day in Baden.

The aim of the presentation is to discuss the various security enhancements which has been introduced with Oracle Release 18c. But which features are worth a closer look at? In what context do the new features and option do make sense? How can security be improved in general with Oracle database 18c? Where does it make sense to invest in additional database options? The aim of this lecture is to answer these and other questions around Oracle Database 18c security.

Among others this presentation will cover the following security enhancements (not conclusively)

  • Create a User-Defined Master Encryption Key
  • Use Encrypted Passwords for Database Links with Oracle Data Pump
  • Use Oracle Data Pump to Export and Import the Unified Audit Trail
  • Create a Keystore for Each Pluggable Database
  • Create Schema Only Accounts
  • Encrypt Sensitive Credential Data in the Data Dictionary
  • Enhancements to Oracle Database Vault
  • Integration of Active Directory Services with Oracle Database
  • Ability to Write Unified Audit Trail Records to SYSLOG or the Windows Event Viewer

Have a look at the SOUG Webpage for a detailed Agenda of the Event and the location. Looking forward to see you there.

SOUG Day

In about a week I will participate at the SOUG Day at Baden. I will present a paper entitled “TSDP Transparent Sensitiv Data Protection“.

The aim of the presentation is to introduce Transparent Sensitiv Data Protection, a rather new Oracle feature which is available since Oracle 12c Release 1. But what exactly can you protect with TSDP? How to use this security feature for standard and custom applications. In this presentation the following points will be discussed (not conclusively)

  • Overview of Transparent Sensitiv Data Protection (TSDP)
  • Configuration and example of TSDP for Data Redaction, VPD and unified audit
  • Challenges related to TSDP
  • licensing

Have a look at the SOUG Webpage for a detailed Agenda of the Event and the location. Looking forward to see you there.
