Explore Oracle Key Vault

Secure key storage, management, and distribution

Oracle Key Vault is specifically engineered for high-performance encryption key management for Oracle Transparent Data Encryption, part of Oracle Advanced Security.

Centralized secrets storage and distribution

Reduce complexity and strengthen security by centrally storing and distributing passwords, tokens, SSH keys, certificates, wallets, and other secrets. The impact of losing one of these secrets can be catastrophic. Key Vault distributes, itemizes, and protects secrets in a highly-available, scalable cluster.

Scale without downtime

High-availability cluster deployment supports up to 16 fully replicated nodes, each capable of read/write operation. Scale the cluster without downtime, support geographically distributed systems, and enable high levels of resource use with no idle standby servers.

Tested and certified

Key Vault is engineered to work seamlessly throughout the Oracle environment with support for Oracle Database, Oracle MySQL, Oracle Exadata, Oracle Real Application Clusters, Oracle Data Guard, Oracle GoldenGate, and more. Key Vault is specifically designed to meet the demanding performance requirements of a busy database, providing secure, centralized storage and management of keys in a highly available cluster of key management servers. Key Vault provides a secure alternative to using local wallets, allowing you to safely remove the encryption keys from servers where encrypted databases are operated. This improves security and reduces the risk of compromise.

Easy to deploy

Available in Oracle Cloud Marketplace, Key Vault offers prebuilt images so organizations can get started and improve database security in just minutes. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure ( OCI)-based Oracle Key Vault clusters provide fault-tolerant, continuous key management services to on-premises, hybrid, or multicloud database deployments. Migrate on-premises Key Vault clusters to OCI, or vice versa, without database downtime. Leverage OCI’s resiliency by installing Key Vault cluster nodes into different availability domains within the same or across different Oracle Cloud regions. Benefit from the flexible deployment options by adding or removing nodes from a cluster and increasing or decreasing the size of the OCI VM shape.


Key Vault provides RESTful APIs for cluster monitoring, database enrollment, and automation, allowing management of large numbers of databases and reducing the cost of administration by eliminating the repetitive tasks of manual database registration.
