Oracle Key Vault securely stores encryption keys, Oracle Wallets, Java Keystores, and credential files in a scalable, fault-tolerant, multimaster cluster that is separate from the encrypted data itself.
This release improves operational security with support for nonextractable keys, organizational certificates, and backup retention policies.
Oracle Key Vault is specifically engineered for high-performance encryption key management for Oracle Transparent Data Encryption, part of Oracle Advanced Security. Only Oracle offers encryption key management for advanced database architectures like Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC), Oracle Data Guard, RMAN backups, and pluggable databases (PDBs).
Reduce complexity and strengthen security by centrally storing and delivering passwords, tokens, SSH keys, certificates, wallets, and other secrets to authorized users and servers. The impact of losing one of these secrets can be catastrophic. Key Vault mitigates that risk while maximizing availability.
High-availability cluster deployment supports up to 16 fully replicated Key Vault nodes, each capable of read/write operations. Scale the cluster without downtime, support geographically distributed systems, and enable high levels of resource utilization with no idle standby servers.
Key Vault is engineered to work seamlessly throughout the Oracle ecosystem with support for Oracle Database, Oracle MySQL, Oracle Exadata, Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC), Oracle Data Guard, Oracle GoldenGate, and more. Key Vault is specifically designed to meet the demanding performance requirements of a busy IT stack, providing secure, centralized storage and management of keys in a highly available cluster of key management servers.
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 Key Vault clusters provide fault-tolerant, continuous key management services to on-premises, hybrid, or multicloud database deployments.
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. A refreshed management console with new dashboards and built-in reports allows administrators to quickly drill down into the various keys and secrets, along with the endpoints and their users.
Embrace a more secure alternative to using local wallets. Remove encryption keys from the database server and reduce the risk of compromise.
Key Vault offers online key management for encrypted trail files, independent of the database vendor, protecting data throughout the entire replication process.
Key Vault supports key storage and distribution for Oracle Automatic Storage Management Cluster File System.
Manage keys for Transparent Data Encryption to accelerate compliance with regulations such as GDPR, CCPA, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and more.
Review the documentation for Oracle Key Vault versions 21.2, 12.1, 12.2, and 18. Topics include installation, upgrading, clustering, integration with HSMs, maintenance and management, and much more.
