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 ...

A new survey takes the pulse on how banks and financial services organizations are phasing out LIBOR, and only 3% of IT leaders say they are prepared for the transition. This article was originally published on the Delphix website here  September 15, 2020. For decades, the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) has been the world’s most widely used interest rate benchmark for mortgages, consumer loans, corporate debt, derivatives, and other financial instruments.
