Provide restricted and time-limited secure access to resources that don't have public endpoints and require strict resource access controls. Examples include compute instances, bare metal and virtual machines, MySQL, ATP, OKE, and any other resource that allows Secure Shell Protocol (SSH) access. With Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Bastion service, customers can enable access to private hosts without deploying and maintaining a jump host. In addition, customers gain improved security posture with identity-based permissions and a centralized, audited, and time-bound SSH session. OCI Bastion removes the need for a public IP for bastion access, eliminating the hassle and potential attack surface from remote access.
