Introducing Oracle Key Vault 21
In this session we focused on the recently released Oracle Key Vault 21 (OKV). OKV is most commonly known for handling Transparent Data Encryption for Oracle and MySQL Databases. The new version adds support for MongoDB and expands another capability of OKV, secrets management. We demonstrated the use of OKV providing a centralized password repository for database connections. Also covered was integration of OKV with Microsoft Active Directory.
