Hi all,  Wow, where did the first half of this year go? It's starting to feel like we will actually be able to meet our customers very soon, September maybe for EMEA. I for one, just cannot wait to get our there again, and really meet with colleagues which I've never met, and customers and partners which we've not met properly for nearly 18 months now. Zoom/Teams has been great, but you cannot convince me that for certain meetings that a better outcome would have been achieved in a Face-to-Face setup. Anyway, back to the fact it's one-day before our 2nd Data Company Conference. If it's half as good as last year's event then we are in for a real treat. I'm really ...

What is TDE? The Oracle Transparent Data Encryption feature encrypts the sensitive data (database tables and tablespaces) stored on the disk. This prevents misuse of the data, if the disks or storage mediums are lost or stolen. The data is transparently decrypted for the authorized users when they access the data. Data is encrypted with the help of encryption keys which are stored in an external module or file, known as the wallet or keystore .  (Note: terms which are in italics on their first usage are summarized in the Definitions section further in this document.) The keystore is managed by an authorized user, and can be either ...
