Oracle Key Vault 18.1
Office hours for May focuses on Oracle Key Vault 18 which was released on April 30. Database Security Product Manager Peter Wahl will lead this session, where we will discuss the new multi-master architecture and how this new capability provides continuous encryption key availability across geographically distributed data centers. We will also review updates to Key Vault's RESTful APIs and review the upgrade process for moving from Key Vault 12.2 to 18. There are TWO identical sessions - 9:00 and 20:00 UTC - click "Start Times Around the World" to see which one best fits 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.
