Introducing Oracle Key Vault 21
Managing encryption keys and IT "secrets" like passwords and SSH keys is a vital part of modern DevOps. Protecting those keys and secrets from compromise is one of the most important goals in information security This month we will introduce the latest version of Oracle Key Vault, with significant new features that help you better manage and secure your encryption keys and secrets. Key Vault version 21 introduces more powerful RESTful APIs, improved user administration, and better secrets management. Key Vault 21 works with Oracle Database, Oracle MySQL, MongoDB, Oracle ZFS, Oracle Exadata, Oracle GoldenGate, and much more. This month's guest speaker is Peter Wahl, Principal Product Manager for Encryption and Key Management. Join us to learn what's new and how you can best leverage the new features in your environment.

There are TWO identical sessions - just pick the one that works best with your schedule. As always, we start with announcements, then move into a technical presentation and then open the lines for your questions related to database security. The sessions are recorded and the recordings are usually available a few days after the session is held.
